I was looking through the groups today and ended up reading about people who have lost loved ones do to diabetes. Out of my 10 years of being a diabetic I have been in DKA 3 times! first one was when i was first diagnosed and the other two times I just wasn't controlling them good enough..
As I read the posts I noticed a lot of them lost their loved ones because of DKA. I couldn't help but think that I have been so lucky to be treated in time to save my life. Since my last DKA I have been taking care of my diabetes and now on the insulin pump. My thought was I am still on this earth because i'm meant to do something big with my life. I am very thankful that I survived being in DKA 3 times
Has anyone ever felt like this? Where they ever stopped and think, why am I still living? am I meant to do something BIG with my life? As diabetics we know that we need to be careful on everything we do but that shouldn't stop us from living life to the fullest right!?
Appreciate life and never take it for granted :}
Yes Daisy, I feel the same way. I have had 3 incidents while driving (low BS) were I have hit one other car, gaurdrails, and the last time I just drove off the road into the brush. Waking up in the back of a bus is scary and each time I've wondered why? Why am I still here? I agree that God has a master plan for each and every one of us. My daughter was dx with T1D 2 days before her 7th birthday so maybe thats why I'm still here? I do not know? But since I am still here I try every day to set a good example for my baby girl.
Maybe right now you dont know but someday, you will. God bless
