It's all about the peripheral neuropathy I live with and how I deal with it. Writing about my complications is something I find both challenging and rewarding.
The challenge comes from just opening up and sharing something very personal and upsetting. I know some people will judge me for my condition and assume my mismanagement at the reason for any complication.
The reward comes from hearing from anyone who feels like they are not alone when they read something I have shared. When people see their stories inside of mine. That is when I know it was worth it. To make that person feel less alone and more normal.
My goal in all of this, as I have said a million times, is to help people never to feel alone. That is why I share the ups as well as the downs. It's why I talk about it even when its the last thing I want to think about. It's why I joined Diabetes Monitor and will continue to find ways to reach those who feel that isolation I did for so long.
It's why I will never quit.
