Yes, I CAN!
Thursday, July 02, 2020
Maybe you can understand what happened to me yesterday. I was working with friends on making masks. We social distanced, and all went well. At lunch, I usually have lots of salad and a small amount of pizza, but that didn't happen. without thinking, I ate 3 pieces of the pizza. My blood sugar numbers went into the 200's, and in my mind I said;
"I should just give up. I can't do this!"
I was so discouraged and disappointed in myself. Negative thoughts were swirling within me, but I focused on the good.
Today I will do better. I have made a lifelong commitment to control Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) with food and exercise as well as medication. I will keep T2D under control. I might slip and fall, but I won't stay in the mud for long.
Today will be a better day. I will rise up and take good care of myself again. T2D is just one more mountain that I have to climb. I can do this!
Yes, I can!
