The diabetes element.


I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

That doesn’t mean I’m not taking care of myself. Not much seems to be going my way right now, but decent management of blood glucose is one of the few things that is.

I’ve been here before, where everything about type 2 diabetes seems routine and engrained. No thought to picking the right foods at the grocery store or going for a walk at lunch or using the blood glucose meter a couple times a day. It just happens.

I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

That doesn’t mean I don’t care about advocacy. I appreciate all the efforts of others who project strong voices. I just don’t see myself as a strong voice when I am weakened by other elements in life.

I’ve been here before, too, sitting on the sidelines until something inspires me, until something moves me, until I feel balanced emotionally.

“I don’t want to talk about it anymore” seems rather extreme. I guess there is a better way to phrase it.

I don’t want to talk diabetes right now.

  1. I totally get it. So instead, let’s talk about how great your hair looks today.

  2. You’re one of my stars, talking or not talking about diabetes.
