I am thankful.
What is it with all these fantastic writing prompts lately? The next ChronicBabe carnival is another one that shines, “I’m thankful for…“, with a submission deadline of Friday, April 1 at 10 pm CT.
I am thankful for so many people, things, and ideas when it comes to dealing with my chronic conditions.
I am thankful for thyroid replacement hormone that allows me to live my life without all the nasty symptoms that come with an untreated errant thyroid.
I am thankful for health care professionals who look at the doctor-patient relationship as a team effort, rather than giving off the vibe that they are the expert and I must listen to them.
I am thankful for staff members at two different hospitals who made me feel comfortable even in the worst of illness and in the midst of recovering from major surgeries.
I am thankful to live in a time when so many treatment options are available to people living with type 2 diabetes.
I am thankful for loved ones, through blood or through spirit, who support me during tough times. (That means you, too, diabetes online community and ChronicBabes.)
Most of all, I am thankful for being able to be thankful, that my life is not always an emotional mess and that I can look on the bright side (at least once in awhile).
