Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in April of 1980. I recognize the incredible mental struggle of living with diabetes. I hope to share my struggles, my successes, and everything in between.

I Am Stronger Than You

I am stronger than you Diabetes.

You will not break me.

Through whatever frustrations, confusions, inconveniences, angers or worries that you throw at me, I will prevail.

I will outlast you.

I will beat you.

I will win the fight.

I am stronger than you.

So put that in your pipe and smoke it. Chump.

Please tell me this is not your letter to diabetes that your therapist wants you to write.

Nope, just something that came to mind yesterday.

I've not decided whether or not I'll "publish" that letter here or not. I'll decide later, once it's finished, and my therapist and I have had some time to work through it.

I feel like printing this off and sticking it on the fridge door as a motivational mantra for the days when I can't stand diabetes anymore.

Great post!
