Today’s Diabetes Blog Week prompt:
Ten things I hate about you, Diabetes – Thursday 5/12: Having a positive attitude is important . . . but let’s face it, diabetes isn’t all sunshine and roses (or glitter and unicorns, for that matter). So today let’s vent by listing ten things about diabetes that we hate. Make them funny, make them sarcastic, make them serious, make them anything you want them to be!!
1. I hate that sometimes I have to jump out of my warm shower and drip water and soap all over the floor because you require sugar treatment.
2. I hate that your name, diabetes, sounds like “die” at the beginning. Although it doesn’t surprise me.
3. I hate that you help me put on extra weight because let me tell you, I used to be really skinny and frankly I loved it. You need not be in that territory, believe me.
4. I hate that because of you, diabetes, I had a crazy hard time enjoying what should have been a more fun and marvelous pregnancy and birth of my twins. Instead, for a while there, I was afraid I wasn’t going to make it.
5. I hate that because of you, diabetes, I have a weird and sometimes unhealthy relationship with food. Carbs laugh at me and look at me with these dark squinty evil eyes and say, “Eat me, I dare you!”
6. I hate that on my wedding day, while I danced with my new hubby, most of my thoughts were about how much my feet hurt because my blood sugar was high. The five inch stilettos didn’t help matters.
7. I hate that I worked at jobs I hated for years because I worked for insurance only. You should have never threatened me in that way.
8. I hate that I assume you’re behind every negative thing that has ever happened to me. You don’t own everything.
9. I hate that I can be human, and simply forget something, and because of you that mistake can cost me my life.
10. Last but not least, I hate that I can’t always control you. You’re a real pain in my perfectionistic behind. And I hate knowing I’ll have to change my ways before you will change yours.
Diabetes, all this talk of hate makes me really uncomfortable. So I will leave you with these words: I’m going to beat the heck out of you with my awesomeness.
