After Blogger deleted Thursday's post...

Ah!  Finally, Blogger is back with us once more after many frustrating hours.  I was becoming concerned that Blogger was out to destroy D-Blog week (as it destroyed yesterday's post), but he/she clearly saw the error of their ways.  I breathe a sigh of relief...  YIPPEEEEE!  Anyway, back to blogging :)

Even though the topic of post for today is to write about your biggest achievement DESPITE having diabetes, I decided that I don't really feel like I've achieved all that much in my 18 years of life really.  I am proud of my exam results and how I always manage to get my work done, despite any difficulties with managing my blood sugar levels.  Apart from that, not much else springs to mind.  If anything, I probably class most of my major moments of courage, determination etc. as those that have actually arisen because of my diabetes.

So, seeing as most of my posts on D-Blog week have been relatively (or really) long, I thought that I'd leave you today with a nice little quote that never fails to inspire me to keep on top of my diabetes.  It reminds me that I am in control of my own well-being, not diabetes (although sometimes Big D does like to have a say in the way things are run around here.)

"Every human being is the author of his own health or disease"

Remember those words, whether you are diabetic or not, and take care of yourselves!  I hope that your day has been beautiful :) x

    I read this every day now. I never realised what life was like for a diabetic because the only one I know is my great uncle, but i've never even seen him inject himself or anything. Call me stupid or whatever but I didn't reailise how hard it is, I don't think I would be able to do it but I guess it's something you have to get used to. I have met you a couple of times and I didn't even know you was diabetic! Well done, you inspire someone who isn't even diabetic x
