It seems like there are so many people out there who hate their diabetes. While I agree that it can be a pain in the butt sometimes, I try to look at it optimistically, too. Yes, I have diabetes, but it adds to my personality. I wouldn't be who I am without it! I used to always wonder if I would ever have any defining characteridtics in my life - I seemed too average. Now that I'm diabetic, I can say it with pride. I try to see it as something special about me. :) Anyone agree?
