If you follow this blog, you probably noticed that last week was Diabetes Blog Week and perhaps you noticed that I made it through Day 4.
If at first you don't succeed, try try again.

If you could personify your diabetes or that of your loved one, what would it be like? What would it look like, what would it say, what kind of personality would it have? Use your imagination and feel free to use images, drawings, words, music, etc. to describe it.
I think of Silent Sam's diabetes as being like Beetlejuice. Since he has been able to so well so far, we are happy to keep it in our mind and at bay. But there is the background worry that the self care will falter or his metabolism will change and there will will be ready to taunt us. That someone will say "diabetes" three times and there it will be to change our lives in a new way.
