There are a few things in our weird little diabetes world that give us an odd sense of satisfaction. Things that folks without this disease just can’t appreciate like we do. For example, seeing a fresh supply of insulin filling up your butter compartment. It feels so good. So…safe, in a weird way. Or changing your infusion site and knowing that you won’t have to worry about inserting a new one for a few days. It’s like a little relief, just for a few days, while managing the exhaustive list of “Things to Worry About with Diabetes” list.
A big, huge, box of pods arriving at your doorstep, replenishing your supply and giving you one less thing to remember to re-order…at least for the next three months.
It really is all about the little joys with this disease…we have to get excited about something, right?
