30 Days With Diabetes: Almost

I was about to go to bed when I realized I haven’t posted today. I’m on Day 27 – it would be almost comical to miss a day now.

But the truth is I’m tired of talking about my diabetes. Yes, I have a book and a blog devoted to it. And yes, I live it every day, but if this series has taught me anything, it’s that I am more than my diabetes.

For years after I was diagnosed, I was terrified to try new things. Just this past year, I went whitewater rafting for the first time. And I recently got my passport renewed because I’m considering traveling abroad again.

My life may have been so different if diabetes hadn’t entered the mix. Sometimes, I dwell a little too much on that almost way of living. But here I am, and even with an incurable chronic condition, I have found a way to thrive.

I may continue to push my limits. Or I may stick with my comfort zone. I’m okay with either because diabetes is just one part of the story.

This post is part of my 30 Days With Diabetes series
