I felt like a weirdo. My eye Dr said oh wow you have been diabetic for 20 years this year. After I left I cried. Being diabetic hasn’t been easy. Felt like a fool for crying about it 🤦🏼‍♀️

      Samesies. It's not easy and doctors are not easy to deal with or find that are easy to deal with. I cry sometimes due to burnout which ends up being almost a couple of times a month if not more. You're not alone and it's okay to get emotional about the stupid stuff. I call it stupid stuff because we didn't ask for it. Keep your head up and keep smiling. Find things that make you happy that support your diabetes.

      Noooo!! Don't feel weird about it!!! I believe it's a grief thing. Our lives grow around the grief of a diagnosis but every once in a while, the grief springs up HARD. It's okay. Have the cry. Embrace the moment. And then keep living life well! 💕

      Don't feel bad, I'm on year 22 of being a diabetic and the anniversary of the day I was diagnosed is always a little tough for me ❤️
