Hey, dolls! I bring to you today a post that is been heavy on my mind since I will be in gorgeous beach weather in the next few weeks! I have expressed many many times how I can feel a bit insecure when it comes to my diabetes affecting my appearance as far as my insulin pump showing or sticking out so others can see. I know to some it sounds stupid or bazar but for my other T1D’s you know exactly what I am talking about. As of lately, I have changed for the good in many ways, one of those being my confidence. I have really fallen in love with myself finally and have accepted the fact that yes I am a Diabetic and that is ok, that doesn’t make me any less attractive than the next girl or it doesn’t make me weird.
For some reason this past week, I have been more down in the dumps than I usually am. I am super excited to go to Miami, I know a lot of people who have gone and can’t say anything but good fun things about it. What makes me nervous is actually getting on the beach and taking off my cover-up and exposing the fact that I have this little machine on my leg. The reason for me sharing how I feel is because I know there are a lot of other Females out there who feel the same way I do. I want this post to make others aware that you shouldn’t be ashamed of who you are or what comes along with being you. I have to constantly remind myself that my illness doesn’t make me damaged goods or ugly, it just makes me unique and I am realizing that is okay.
I know this post is so random but I love sharing any and everything with you guys and I know I can come on here and just express or share what I feel like sharing! Also, I feel like there are a lot of diabetics Male or Female who may at times feel the same way I do. That is the tricky part about this disease is we try our best to stand up proud and love ourselves for who we are but there are also times where it can get in your head. I love the fact that we have such powerful technology that allows us to not have wires attached any longer or that gives us our insulin without us really having to lift a finger, so let someone stare at me on the beach because chances are I look just as good as you in my bikini if not better.
I actually want to do a separate post as well regarding how I will be traveling with my diabetic supplies and all that good stuff because I legit wrote on my Instagram story asking others if I should bring my Pump or Pen and everyone voted for BOTH! I just get nervous about going to the Security line and how they act at times, again another insecure thing I really need to get over! I am also so sorry for being so M.I.A lately, my personal life has been so busy and it can be hard at times to think of something good to write about but I promise I will be getting it together and trying to be more active with blogging!
