I went to an Adult Diabetes Support Group Meeting the other day. It was the first time I have been to a support group meeting for diabetes. There were about 12 people there including three young children that were brought by one of the participants. THe meeting lasted for 3 hours. Most of us were on the pump. There was a group facilitator and she was not a diabetic. I have been developing ideas on how to help others with diabetes and the meeting confirmed to me that there is a need out there. Everyone of us was at a different place. And everyone us is at a different place with respect to the handling of diabetes in our life. Diabetes is not a disease that can be dealt with separate or apart from dealing with oneself. The facilitator of the group used a visual in the group that I had been writing about. “Put your mask on first before assisting others.” Instructions we hear before taking off in a plane. It is especially true with diabetes. Forget about it! If you don’t handle your shit first you are screwed in this game. In the meantime I saw some that were coasting….Ok, don;t blame them but let’s go …………As for me….I am perfect of course….just perfect. Hope someone reads this..
