But until then, we have to keep fighting as a type 1. Believe me, I have had so many ups and downs with this disease (literally with my blood sugar and emotionally), it is a huge pain in the rear and feels like a struggle daily.

Crazy what this little bottle does

As I’m sitting back and reflecting, looking at this little tiny bottle of insulin….. It blows my mind how what’s inside this little insulin bottle is what keeps me breathing day after day.  This little freaking bottle, what would we do without it?? -Nothing, because we wouldn’t be here.

 

As much as I hate spending ridiculous amounts of money on insulin, and then constantly sticking a syringe into this bottle of Humalog and giving 6+ shots a day, I can’t express enough how at the same time I am so thankful for Humalog.  It is what gives me the opportunity to go out and enjoy this world that we are blessed to be a part of.  I cannot wait until the day that Type 1 diabetes has a cure.  Can you imagine what life would be like going a whole day without diabetes?  No staring at the sensor a million times a day, or no pricking our finger every time we have a headache or feel weird, and the one that I look forward to the most is no giving or guessing a bolus amount every time that I want to eat.  Ahhhh it is going to be amazing and I have faith that one day we will all get to experience this together.  I CAN NOT WAIT!!!

 

But until then, we have to keep fighting as a type 1.  I have so many ups and downs with this disease , it is a huge pain in the ass and feels like a struggle daily.  But we have to keep fighting.  We are fortunate to be on this earth, and we have to step up and take advantage of every breathing second we have on this planet.  We got this… You got this… let’s chase our dreams and go diaBEASTmode.
