Diabetes Blog Week: Day 7: Life after a Cure...a little dream of mine!

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!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful week off :) And totally with you on the coke float, chucking of the D goodies... and being immensely thankful. s

  2. It's been an amazing week and I've enjoyed finding so many new blogs.

    I'm trying to get through all of Day 7's postings.

    Today was amazing. I daydreamed a little and laughed and cried...and...I'm kinda sad to go back to the grind tomorrow.

  3. That list is making me hungry!

    There would be many, many tears of joy around the world. Hopefully one day soon.
