Mantra's and More - DBlog Week Day 4

Today we are getting back to the positive with our topic Mantras and More. Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets you through a hard day? Or, more specifically, a hard diabetes day? Something positive you tell yourself, or mantras, or what you fall back on to get you through. Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this topic.)

Sometimes I take Diabetes was too personally, I can be a bit tough on myself if I'm stuck high or low, if I get emotional over the slightest mishap or if it's getting a bit much on top of everything else.

Luckily for me, most of the time when those thoughts creep up on me I have John by my side cuddling me and wiping away my tears, telling me that it's not my fault and we can do it a day at a time. I never really truly broke down about Diabetes until I'd been with him for a couple of months. I'd had a shitty day and was stuck low, had a couple of glucotabs and wanted to raid the kitchen (he did stop me from going overboard). I ended up sobbing my heart out on my kitchen floor repeating "I don't want it anymore, I just want it to go away".

So my mantra is to just take it a day at a time.

We all know every day is different no matter what you eat or how hard your try to keep it on an even keel, I guess it's just how we deal with it. 

John and I are #TeamAwesome and we're going to make Diabetes fit in with us, not the other way round :)
