When you are Type 1 and want to say ✨ :
Lately, in social media, diabetes becomes a cool disease and I'm really fed up with that. I know we have to keep going, I know we have to fight, I do it for more than 14 years ! Diabetes is different for each diabetic. Sometimes it's easier, sometimes it's worst. We can't just post happy diabetic pictures because it's not the reality. It's ok if today you cry, it's ok if you got bad numbers, it's ok if you don't go hiking/running/travelling/partying, it's ok if you can't smile. Diabetes on social medias is not a competition. Diabetes is a long life disease and there is nothing cool with that. Except that diabetic people are pretty cool and strong 🙏🏻
I’m not depressed or sad, I just wanted to tell that real life is not what instagram shows.
You don’t have to show that you are perfect. You are perfect the way you are and the most import is that you, and only you, truly believe it.
