You are not damaged goods because you are diabetic
, in fact diabetes has helped me to be the person I am today
. Of course I wish I were not diabetic, but I don't want to look at it that way. I like to think I am more compassionate, smarter, more organized, better at thinking outside the box, have a great sense of humor and the list goes on, because I am diabetic.
My whole point is please don't blame yourself or look down on yourself because you have diabetes.
