I am generally a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of person..
I tend to look on the brighter side of things – I like to be an optimist and I always try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I worry a lot – maybe too much – but it comes with the territory and in my opinion, shows the level of which I care about the people I love.
Today I am questioning things and people’s good heartedness in general… I am somewhat emotional today – coming down from the stress of the past week.
I speak from the heart and I wear my heart on my sleeve –
that is who I am.
I FEEL for people – I think I am a good person and that empathy and kindness are some of my best qualities.. I would give the shirt off my back to help those close to me if they were in need – probably even if it was the only shirt I owned…
Today, it doesn’t feel like those feelings are reciprocated..
YES – I take things to heart. I take things personally when maybe I shouldn’t – but that is who I am.
I am sharing our life, our struggles, my emotions every.single.day. to help people.. It takes A LOT for me as a person to reach out – reach out for help – reach out for support – reach out for understanding.. This Blog has been a fantastic way for me to do that..
- To help people understand what a life with T1D is truly like
- To help educate the public so the T1D community can stop being unfairly judged
- To help those dealing with some of the same struggles and not feel so alone.
- To help FIND A CURE
I’ve said it before and I will say it again…
Type 1 Diabetes is an INVISIBLE DISEASE – that impacts your life in so many more ways than just physically… It is an emotional roller coaster that on some days you are gripping on for dear life and desperately want off. On the flip side, some days you are enjoying the wind in your face and feel like D won’t stop anything.
Maybe every.single.day is too much for people?
Maybe I have dulled peoples senses and they are bored hearing about it?
Maybe people just don’t care as much as they say they do?
I don’t know – but today I’m feeling disheartened …
right or wrong – feelings are feelings…
I hope I get proved wrong..
