Writing poems is definitely not my strong point but here we go let me know what you think
So here’s the thing about diabetes…
I feel like I’m ALWAYS learning!
And even when my child’s levels are good,
My stomach is still churning.
Some days we don’t know what to expect
We never know what the next few hours hold
And many people see things differently
“It gets easier” so I’m always told!
But I wait for those days,
And wonder if its just me?!
Or does it really feel like a juggling act
Where I’m constantly shouting “oh jee!!”
From hypos to hypers, and everything in between
We gotta ride the waves!
We take each bump with gratefulness
For insulin and the lives that it saves!
Because without this medicine,
My daughter wouldn’t be here!
And even though it’s a daily battle
Of fighting all the fear!
It’s changed our lives
For the better in many ways!
Without insulin, diabetes would be
Even more of a maze!
We’re so lucky to use an insulin pump
To keep our child alive!
And to be able to see her live a life
Where all she does is thrive!
Thats what is priceless
No matter what they say
Type 1 diabetes doesn’t define her
It just sometimes gets in the bloody way!
