How much can change in 6 months!
Last time I wrote about my little world, I was sat in a freezing cold flat, on my own, hating life. Nothing seemed to be going right and I couldn’t catch a break. Fast forward 6 months and I’m sat in a cosy flat that I share with a dashing Scotsman, whilst a crazy little kitten sits next to me batting at my fingers on the keyboard.
Turns out, things are much easier to deal with when you let someone help you out, who knew? I’ve managed to cram quite a lot into those few months, and the way I was feeling back then feels a million miles away. I quit my job that I was hating and ended up in a job I love and took a chance on my best friend, who has ended up being everything I ever wanted from life, and so much more.
I’ve written previously about the baggage it feels like I’m carrying when it comes to dating. It can be very daunting and almost off-putting to a lot of guys, and understandably so. However, having built a solid friendship for a couple of years previously, my better half already knew about all the ins and outs of what I deal with, and has more than taken it all on the chin since we began dating. From learning to recognise what my bloods are doing, just by how I’m acting, or how I look, to getting out of bed at 3 in the morning to fetch me a Lucozade and hold my hand whilst I get myself sorted, diabetes is just that little bit more bearable with him around.
A new development in the world of Diabetes has also played a massive part in making my life easier lately too. CGM’s (Continuous Glucose Meters) became available to buy! For those who don’t remember, or haven’t read my old post on Pumps & CGM’s (and if not, why not?) I’ve written in the past about wanting one in my life, and since then, they became available for just about anyone. My Auntie is also a Type 1 Diabetic so when her and my Uncle bought one, they also treated me to one too. I was so excited and so, so grateful and I can honestly say that they are one of the best things I’ve ever known as a Diabetic. I’m going to do a follow-up post all about it with some more information cause there’s so much to say, so keep your eyes peeled!
I’ll leave it there for now, but I’ll be posting the CGM blog in the next couple of days, so if you haven’t already, please subscribe and share etc, as always. Thanks guys!
