'Diabetes management is a marathon, not a sprint'
I read this recently in a book. It captured my attention especially because I realised that I'd been trying to do the 100 metre relay in Diabetes Sports Day for 15 years.
I would get into my 'I'm going to do this!' state of mind and start to make changes to my diabetes management. However if I didn't see almost immediate results, I'd give up and relapse into the 'I hate diabetes and it obviously hates me too' mentality pretty quickly.
Now I know that things don't work that way in the realm of Diabetes. If I want to be healthy and have well controlled blood sugars, I need to work to earn them. I need to stick with it. Persevere.
So that's pretty much all I have to say for today. Okay, so it's now 11.23pm on the second day of #HAWMC but I made it before midnight! Going home for easter break tomorrow (without my laptop may I add!) so I am going to have to find someway of getting my posts written and live everyday. Might be interesting.
