They like me, they really like me!

Have you been over to the Diabetes 365 pool lately? I'm on day 157. The picture at the bottom of this post is day 150. I'm not sure why, but it's been chosen as a favorite by 9 members of flickr. I was also invited to add it to a group called "That's Bostin"(no idea what it means), but there are a lot of amazing pictures in that pool as well. I just thought I should share it here too.

Diabetes 365 - Day 150 Being different.

Having Type 1 Diabetes can make a person feel different. It's not so easy to blend in when you need to test, take shots, or wear an insulin pump. Your life can revolve around food, numbers, and the idea of looming complications.
Sometimes it's hard not to see myself as that lone tiny lavender colored crocus surrounded by the strong deep purple ones. But I can always turn that statement around. I can remember that although diabetes makes me a little different, I am still beautiful in my own way like that tiny flower.

There is no cure for Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes.

Yet.
