I dont know if many of you know but I have type 1 diabetes. I've had it since I was 12 years old. So soon 32 years.
One of the reasons I became so interested in alternative healing is because I want to be free of my need for synthetic insulin.
So I am on the most fantastic holiday with my family and about to go to the waterpark when a part of my cordless insulin pump will no longer connect.
I have tried all of the troubleshooting I have had to do before but no nothing is connecting. So I effectively have no insulin going into my body.
I am on holiday in Morocco so unless I went to spend a fortune talking to the customer service. A call like this can take up to an hour. I know, I've been here many times before for different things. So I have emailed them.
I was hoping for a speedy reply but as yet nothing.
I was so prepared. I brought spares of everything I had. But the one part that has failed today I had already had to replace as its 6 months actually expired a few days ago.
So the point of this blog post today is that I have a choice today. I can either sit and wait for a reply and feel more and more would up waiting for their 365 day 24 hr team to email me back
I can RIP off my pump and go back to insulin pen therapy and go and enjoy the water park with my family.
Have fun with them and forget about all this for a while.
Before I would have stayed in the room and swallowed. Feeling that life is Sooo unfair. Why did this happen to ME.
But not anymore. I'm off to meet them now.
If the team email me while I'm off enjoying myself I will reply when we get back. I may be a bit high while the insulin kicks in but I can manage that.
AND another plus, it gave me time to discover how to write another blog post ????????
Remember just as I teach my eldest you are in control of your day. What you focus on becomes your reality. I choose to focus on having fun today ????♀️????♀️????♂️ filled with lots of water slides and an evening pool party.
Yes what happen today was shitty, but the rest of my day will not be ☀️????????????
I have a Facebook group full of fantastic self help techniques that you can join here
