I'm not talking about doctors or therapists. I'm talking about family members or friends. Who do you find is your biggest supporter? What makes them your biggest supporter? Back in 2016, I lost seven immediate family members and out of those seven, three of them were on my support team. I lost my biggest supporter in my mom along with my step-dad and my grandma. Finding it very hard to find people to replace them on my team.
My best friend and my fiance' have to be my biggest support. My best friend was with me when I was diagnosed with cancer 2014 and has been by my side ever since. She helps me stay on track and goes to all my appointments with me. My fiance is my biggest cheerleader and my rock... he is also in the medical field and he explains things to me that I don't understand...
Life seems to unfold that way, death is inevitable, it’s much more difficult for the surviving, but remember we never loose someone, maybe now they exist in a different way, but they exist.
How is it that we can smell a rose in the winter time, do the same.
Other than ourselves, we always need a shoulder to lean on. If things aren't going the way you want it to go, a sounding board helps. My mom was that sounding board. If something isn't working, I usually would talk to her and sometimes just hearing yourself talk you can find that answer you are looking for. I think it's very important to have someone that understands what you are going through to be there to talk.
My fiancé two children,my granddaughter,and my friends,they are what keeps me going,even pushing me in a wheel chair when I need it,I am very blessed,I also lost my two friends since childhood and my mother,father and hubbys mother all with in 3 months time..it’s hard,God Bless you.🙏🏻🙏🏻💞💞
Suecsdy - I totally understand about having a friend that has a skewed idea about diabetes. I think everyone has a least one. I try to involve my family in my diabetes talk but they the current ones don't understand. They think it's just simple, if you do this, then this will fall off. No, It's not that easy. It can be frustrating. I just learn not to talk about my diabetes in front of them.
