Sure...but i think that about more than being diabetic. I probably think it more about other stuff really. I guess its a natural thing to wonder about such hardships. Maybe since I have been diabetic for much of my life I don't really think of a time that I wasn't.I've been a diabetic for 16 years now, but still find myself asking: "Why me?"
Has anybody else been dealing with this nagging question more than once in a while?
that's a lovely desire to have Shanny Kids are a big blessing!Maybe I'm missing some vital psychological "cog", but this is a question that doesn't occur to me - at least not in this way. Of course there are a few things I might change in my life, but if you gave me the option of living closer to my kids or being non-diabetic, I'd have to choose closer to my kids. (Actually, I'd choose to have all 15 kids move in with us! Then I could do all the cookin' & they could do the cleanin'! )
now that's putting it in perspective isn't it! lol.I feel for your friend. My husband had Chrohn's so bad that 15 years ago they were forced to surgically remove his entire large intestine. It was completely ulcerated. Now he deals daily with the issues that having an ilieostomy brings to his life. Funny thing...when I first went on the insulin pump, I loved the control it gave me but I did feel sort of unattractive I guess having this thing connected to me all the time (total vanity I know). When I told my hubby that I felt less attractive to him because of it he just pointed to his ilieostomy and looked at me and said...Seriously??? I could see his point and realized then that no matter how bad I thought my situation was...there are people living with situations that are just as bad if not worse than mine.
You hit the nail on the head with your answer. That is how I feel so frustrated at times, and if it was not for my faith, and wife, I'd probably quit trying to stay ahead of the inevitable. This disease has way to many twist and turns that simply put, catch up with me and tire me out at times. :boom:I don't really ask the why me. I do get very tired of the whole situation at times though.

I'm in a valley right now, and I know I'll get out, just how long and when, is yet to be determined!
Like they say, tomorrow is another day, and my sun came up today, and with that I'm feeling more like the fighter I've been in the past. I appreciate all the love and concern sent my way on this forum, it was helpful, and the cyber rope did the trick.Here's a rope brother. Hold on and we'll help pull you out.
