So, you have been diagnosed with diabetes. It’s a shock to be told that you have a chronic condition that will stay with you for the rest of your life – well, until they find a cure, which they haven’t yet (regardless of what charlatans may claim). It is natural to be depressed, angry, or scared, or to feel guilt even. I know because I’ve been through all that. But do not despair. Diabetes, regardless of type, is controllable. Yes, you can control your diabetes.
You, not diabetes, dictate how you live and how you deal with your condition.
You, not diabetes, are the captain, the master, the driver of your health, your life and your future.
I thank whatever gods may be
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
