I’m feeling confused , sad I don’t know…
I had diabetes type 1 since I was 5 years it’s been 15 years since I discovered it.This quarantine give time to think about things I never thought about It’s .
Like that I will have to take Insulin injection for the rest of my life that’s I will always be paranoid about having hyperglycimia in my sleep and there would be no one to rescue me and I don’t have anyone to talk to about this .
There is also my father who care much about meeting with his friends at this time than his daughter who’s higher risked to get sick because of coronavirus.
I just want it to get this off my chest because it was bothering me lately .
Hey, I can totally understand what you must be going through. One of my closest friends in school was diabetic too. So, I can only imagine your struggle and am no one to comment on it. And truly it sucks so much worse when the people you have to be with don’t understand the importance of how it comprises your health. I’m sure you would have tried explaining it to him but to no avail. I’m prone to respiratory diseases, so my family made me quarantine even before corona became a huge deal. I think explaining the concept of “Asymptomatic” and how it compromises your immunity, even if he feels he won’t get it, might be a start.
Moreover, you can avoid common places that you share such as the dining table or TV Couch if you feel. I believe if you start taking measures, maybe it occurs to him and the rest of your family, how hard it is for you and that it isn’t something they should take lightly.
Take Care, Hope you stay safe and healthy!
Hey, it’s ok to think about this and it’s ok to be confuzzled. It happens. And I’m sorry you have no one to talk to about this.
You have your whole life ahead of you and its not just all about the you-know-what. I am for certain that you will find someone to help you and make you forget about it. The knight in shining armor. The person that would do anything for you and make you comfortable in this world of ours. So, I’m gonna end this with a quote, hopefully this helps you.
“It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way” - Alan Watts
The reason why I picked this quote is because life is too short to be miserable. I know I said its ok to think about it now but we all have to start somewhere right? And so far, I think you are strong, very strong. You will find a way to live life the fullest, so don’t let it (the paranoia) get to ya and keep doing what you like to do. And have fun! 😁✌
