Always thinking of the future. And it scares me more than anything...theres so many "what if's" that come with Diabetes that sometimes I over-think myself. What if I go blind in ten years? What if I need an amputation? What if...just something happens that isn't reversable, again. Diabetes is alot for me mentally at times. I also hate when people say "Dustin, why are you so quiet, are you mad?". Well, to be honest...yes, I am mad. I'm mad that my pancreas doesn't work. I'm mad that my family has to worry about me. I'm mad because there is so much uncertainty that comes with Type 1 Diabetes. I get mad sometimes just because I have to watch everyone around me eat whatever they want and not worry about counting carbs and injecting themselves with needles, while I have to count carbohydrates and inject myself insulin. I'm mad because I have to poke my finger with a piece of sharp metal to draw blood so I can check what my BG is. This probably sounds like me complaining, and I should probably just shut the hell up and move on. I normally am in a positive mood about this, but when everything piles up high enough, your mind can only take so much. This felt good. It'll feel better when it's published.
