It’s Not Just The Diabetes

Living with diabetes is hard.

jumping-through-hoopsBut today reminded me that it is not just the diabetes that makes living with diabetes hard.  It is all the extra crap we deal with around our diabetes that is almost more of a headache than managing blood sugars and insulin doses.

Let’s have a vote.  Would it be easier to take good care of yourself if you had everything you needed, without having to fight for it?  How about not having to deal with attitudes, billing troubles, long hold times on the phone, not getting prompt call backs?

Managing the diabetes itself is hard enough.  I don’t need extra trouble on top of that, especially when I’m just trying to take care of myself.  I should not have to get aggressive and pushy to get the help I need.

I’m just sayin’…
