[IP] Re: Certificate from Joslin
if the certificate is important to you, then fine... i have no problem with
that... i just dont get it.
(im only 3 years from 50 years, myself).. AND, any way, that anyone deals with
this "delightful disease", is fine.... but, do i need, or desire, some
clinic, who has never met me, has no particular interest in me, "Certifying
me" (or some disease i happen to have) ??... I think not.....
id like to quote, one of my favorite people:
"I get up everyday just like you.
And I yell at my teenager to get out of bed so he can go to school, just
like you do with yours.
And I take on the world just like you. "
the fact that my life, is as normal (well, normal may be a stretch for me,
since ive never been called normal), as it is, gives me a daily reason, to
celebrate....(and i do.. i wake up every morning, i look at my family, then
at my pump, and think "im i a lucky dog or what ??")
Diabetes, For Me, is little more, then some small baggage (and now, some
small bag, i ware on my side).
I would never put anyone down, for having a party, celebrating their
diabetes, or reaching, with they consider to me, a milestone....... not
even a little. but i Personally cant see CELEBRATING my diabetes... it
would be like giving it too much importances...it is Not Who i am. .
I simply celebrate every day.... just 'cause im alive.....(and... with my
pump, i my celebrate, a little more............. well..........
celebratorialy (i like it, even if its not a word).)
Just my feelings....
(and just my personal feelings, about how i approach my illness... i do not
mean, in any way, nor do i wish anyone who feels different, to take this as
in insult, or degradation, on the way they choose to live)
