I received such overwhelming support after the verbal vomit in my last post. Not that I expected anything else. This love and support is what changes people's lives. It has changed mine.
I've been thinking a lot about that today. About how in the world I did this for so long without the DOC. You all have become like family to me, and I can't imagine dealing with diabetes without all of you anymore. Victoria and Cheri both wrote some beautifully fantastic and poignant posts on the topic yesterday. Please take a moment to read them.
Two weeks ago today, I went to my endo appointment. I hadn't gotten around to writing about it yet (because I have a problem with procrastination, not because it was bad). I was nervous that my A1c had gone up, and didn't really want to go.
But on the morning of the appointment, I wasn't nervous. I was calm, and confident that I could handle whatever the number turned out to be. It is just a number, after all. I know the reason I felt so at peace was all of you.
And you know what? My A1c was 7.2%! Only 0.1% higher than the last one, which is basically no change at all!!! I was ecstatic! Happy endo, happy CDE, and happy Jess.
You wonderful people give me hope. You remind me each day that I can do this. Thank you.
