Day 3: Accomplishments, Large and Small

We don’t always realize it, but each one of us had come a long way since diabetes first came into our life. It doesn’t matter if it’s been 5 weeks, 5 years or 50 years, you’ve done something outstanding diabetes-wise. So today let’s share the greatest accomplishment you've made in terms of dealing with your (or your loved one’s) diabetes. No accomplishment is too big or too small - think about self-acceptance, something you’ve mastered (pump / exercise / diet / etc.), making a tough care decision (finding a new endo or support group / choosing to use or not use a technology / etc.). (Thanks to Hillary of Rainie and Me for this topic suggestion.)

Pretty proud of this one.

And this one.

(giving whole blood to others a total of 35x over 7 years)

And even my cgm case matching (and formerly insulin pump case matching) ensemble throwing-together skillz have improved over the years.

It's still a work in progress though...there's so much that I want to accomplish (despite the diabetes). If there was a cure tomorrow you wouldn't hear me complaining that I couldn't take it along for the ride, though.

What have you accomplished, with diabetes?
