Your Diabetes, A Blessing or a Curse

We have all thoughts about why we ended up with a disease that lives with us forever.
And since it does a number or our emotions, we have to constantly question whether it is a blessing or a curse.

I think it is a BLESSING because:

It keeps me thinking about what I eat.It makes me wants to move and exerciseIt makes me think about my mental health and its impact on my lifeIt makes me care more for others who suffer diseasesIt reminds me of my mortality

I think it is a CURSE because:

I cannot eat whatever I feel like, so never free.It is a constant pain in the butt to plan the day especially when you travel.Waking up with high sugars is a big downer for the rest of the dayI am constantly thinking about what will go bad in my body nextI am spending lots of money on medications Overall, I think like anything else in the human condition, it is a mixed bag.  So my dear readers, let hear your comments on where you believe you are on this issue.
