Just another day in the life of a diabetic…

Mantras & More

on May 15, 2014

Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day.  Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day.  Is there something positive you tell yourself?  Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through?  Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost?  Maybe we’ve done that and we can help others do it too? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this topic.)

What gets me through a hard diabetes day? Besides a lot of complaining? LOL But seriously, that is a good question. To be honest, I don’t think there is any one thing that gets me through a rough d day. Each day is different, each “difficult situation” is a different experience. Here are some of the “happy thoughts: that help me through a rough spot: “This, too, shall pass.” is one of my favorites. The thought that I am not alone ALWAYS helps in these situations. A nap can help (time permitting, of course) Even a good cry, once in a great while, can help. The thought that I’ve made it this far, and I am one tough cookie, helps 😉 Reaching out to a friend, who just happens to be a diabetic and talking about it, or talking about EVERYTHING BUT, helps! And of course, my dog. I don’t know why, but the comfort of animals in rough situations somehow always centers and calms me. ❤

    All good things to help one get through! Definitely reckon that a good cry is sometimes so relieving, no use bottling it up inside. 🙂

    Animals are great,they love unconditionally.(and don’t talk back lol) And I think everyone needs a good D-friend to be there for them to listen. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh yes, the love of a pet is pretty much the best thing ever. (But maybe don’t tell Pete I said that . . . )
