It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted here. I keep asking myself if there's something I want to write about vis-a-vis diabetes and the answer keeps coming up no. Not no emphatically or full of emotion. Just a quiet no, like there's nothing much to say about it right now. Which a good thing quite frankly, because it represents a new level of acceptance and equilibrium around the subject of this disease in my life. Diabetes still rocks and rolls, it still messes with my plans and my day but for some reason that fact doesn't seem to upset me quite so much lately. And I think that is, in great part, because of being able to write this blog to a caring audience and in return, receive such kindness and support from so many people out there. This blog started out as a voice in the dark and what I've found over the past few years is a place of great warmth and lightness and comfort. Which I carry with me everyday, which means I'm less frantic about it all for longer periods of time. It's not to say that I want to stop writing this blog or that I won't need to use it to rant or grieve again, but for now, for this period I feel a new level of peace I've never experienced before. Peace, acceptance and though I'm still sad about all diabetes means and brings to my life, it seems to weigh a little less heavily on my soul these days. Which is, quite simply, a great relief.
