Wayback Wednesday – In The Swamp

Picture of my hand with a BG line chart in the backgroundCourtesy of the “Wayback Machine“, I bring you the early entries I made in my online diabetes journal.  This was back before Blogger made things easy, and I had to write the entries in HTML.  The journal is no longer available, but thanks to the wonderful tools available on the internet, I was able to find much of my old stuff.  I’d like to share one of the old entries with you.

Totally in the swamp here.  A familiar feeling for many of us I’m sure.

06 Nov 2000

Yuck. This disease has been draining all of my emotional strength lately. All of it. Every last bit. I feel like I have no mental energy for anything. This is taking a toll on my relationship with Tab, my enjoyment of Bryce, and my general mood. I struggle to get out of the cycle. But, I need energy to get out of the cycle. To get energy, I need to get out of the cycle. Shit.

  1. I so share your feeling. It seems like at times it consumes your whole life! You can’t get away from it for any reason. But hey, I’ve read your blog, I have no doubt that you will kick this back where it belongs! Keep your head up 🙂

  2. Oh mercy. The first thought that came to mind as I read this was “whywhywhy are we constantly pelted with all of these f—ing emotions”. Thinking that you wrote this 8 years ago and have probably been through the cycle 30 times since makes me wanna scream. I HATE IT.
    But look – you’re still here, and I’m still here – reasonably whole and intact in mind and spirit. So there will probably be other swamps, and each time we’re stuck we become a tiny bit more clever and resourceful in finding a way out.
    Look back on your strength and courage and be proud.

  3. Today is going pretty well – but only because my BG’s don’t suck (for a change). As soon as they get all helter-skelter – which is what I’ve come to expect – I’ll be knee deep in muck again.
