This dog was inspired to read this story about the oldest pump user in the UK, who’s had diabetes for 80 years. She’s had quite a life and it’s clear diabetes has never stopped her doing anything. And reading how she used to sharpen her own needles up until 5 years ago was an eye opener.
But he was also a bit disappointed to read her final words of wisdom “after living with diabetes for 80 years myself, my message to people with diabetes would be this: do exactly what your diabetes physician tells you to do!” Really? Not to learn all you can about diabetes and take control of it so that you can live a happy, healthy life? Just to blindly do what you’re told.
This dog is now a little less inspired and is going to find a hummingbird to chew on to raise his spirits. Meanwhile, what words of wisdom would ShootUp readers share about living with diabetes?
