I think you nailed it - with the fact that most of us are taught that diabetes is controllable. And many times the clinicians we deal with are almost too focused on "book diabetes" - you know, equations and calculations that always work in theory, but not always in practice.

We are often left to feel like we did something wrong, or not right enough. And it's possible that many times those feelings are self-imposed... The mental aspects of diabetes are so damn complicated for me - it's what I struggle with most.

Whether it's some form of denial, or types of guilt, or whatever. I know the tools, and usually know how to use them, but sometimes have trouble putting them into practice.

For what it's worth, I got a lot out of your "be gentle" post. That's something we all need to do more of.

Great blog - I enjoy reading it, and get a lot out of it.
