#DBlogWeek: Mantras And More.

Today's prompt: Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too?

Find out more about Diabetes Blog Week here.

I thought about skipping this topic, because, you know.

However, there are certainly things I do to cheer myself up in a bad diabetes moment (more of the "More" than the "Mantra", I guess):

  • Instagram or tweet whatever crap is happening and feel comforted and amused by the emoji-filled replies of those who get it
  • go read blogs like Bigfoot Child Have Diabetes or i have the sugars or Typical Type 1
  • try to think of something to post on Diabuzzfeed and probably not succeed but feel amused anyway
  • refocus my energy into planning for FFL and related exhibit space for You Can Do This Project this summer (mentally waves at Glucolift across the hall)
  • remember that whatever issue I'm having, it's temporary and one little speck of dust in the universe of my diabetes history

Bingo. That last one.

  4. I was worried by "across the hall." I'm glad it means "across the aisle in the hall." Those rocketship people are good folk.
