First of all- I would like to thank Karen for making this Diabetes Blog Week possible. I feel more connected and NOT alone this week than I ever have as a person with T1. It's really easy to see through all this blogging that I'm not alone and I'm not the only one.
Life after a cure is a little scary to think about. I think it's because I'm scared it Won'T happen. But, I'll give it a whirl.
The first thing I would do is CRY...cry...cry............and cry some more.
Then...I'd eat a GIGANTIC Hot Chocolate fudge sundae and a blizzard from DQ and go out for a nice large Italian dinner...followed by a late night of beer drinking and pizza.
I would then get rid of every blood glucose meter in my household (I think 7 total although I really only use 1). I would empty boxes of infusion sets and test strips, rid myself of needles and prescriptions, and cancel doctors appointments.
I would then probably go have a regular Coca-cola- out of spite and top that with some vanilla ice cream to create a giant Coke Float!
I know I would get down on my knees and thank God for returning me to my normal life...but also thank him for the challenge he layed before me and the lessons I learned along the way. I would also thank him for allowing my children to be free of their mother's disease.
I would also hope to continue with this community of bloggers- sharing stories about Life After the Cure...because we wouldn't all be connected unless it were because of Life BEFORE the cure.
Thank you all for this wonderful week- I'm on vacation for another...will continue posting upon my return!
