My Diabetes Anniversary Date Approaches

May 18, 2020

This is the Merry month of May where I get to flashback about having untreated type 1 diabetes when I was 10 years old. I was a dying 10 year old, I already know what it is like to be sedated on a ventilator. I had life support taken care of by machines for goodness sake. This is life long trauma for me, and something I have immense difficulty talking to anybody about. If it is said, I stuff my feelings, then I royally stuff my feelings. I try to not talk about stuff like this so that I do not make people feel sorry for me, which is a response I can’t help since my life is full of tragic circumstances that could have been prevented by accessing medical care. I didn’t access SSI until I was 28. That’ s when I got proper mental health treatment, try digesting that one.
