For Day 3 of the Health Activist Writer Monthly Challenge, we are asked to post a picture that symbolizes your condition and your experiences.
Well, it’s not a picture of my pump or my supplies or my diabetes, but rather why I keep going.
This, for me, symbolizes why I do what I do.
This is my husband, holding our daughter when she was six weeks old.
This is everything I ever wanted and dreamed about. The sum of all my good and bad experiences with this disease has led me here.
And I am grateful.
And now, I fight to stay healthy every day, because I love them more than my diabetes.
And I don’t want them to live without me.
So, I used words. Is that OK?
