Ron Swanson's Message For Diabetes Blog Week

This is Diabetes Blog Week, Year 7.

The Prompt: Message Monday. Share your message, all about why you blog. Yep, share that story.

Everyone's got one. All the many diabetes blogs are sharing their messages, which are pretty consistent on why they got to blogging and what's important to them.

Yeah, that's all great.

But I'm not currently in the mood to advocate or press my brain into thinking about diabetes more than I have to. Seriously, I do that enough in my day job.

On the personal front these days, my message is simple: Fuck you, diabetes.

Seriously. These 200+ blood sugars in the past week are kicking my ass, and while I am taking a needed pump break and don't feel discouraged about that, it's getting to me that I'm higher than normal and am just tired of this.

I"m somewhat burnt out and not all too keen on going deep. So, for the moment, that's all I want to say.

I'll let the dozens of other bloggers go into whatever serious point they feel the need to.

I may not write every 5 days, because I don't have to. It's about writing on my own terms, as I need and want to. I hope that's why everyone blogs, so it's from the heart and serves whatever purpose they need it to in their world.

Really, I don't give a shit. And I'm perfectly cool with that right now.

For me, I'm going to just keep navigating blood sugars as needed. And now, it's time to catch up on Game of Thrones before relaxing with a little Ron Swanson and Leslie Knope.

I won't do anything annoying like send you hugs or say I understand. I'll leave it to your mom to kick your butt. Abby the Black Lab recommends that you just take #JournoDog for a walk and hope that you come home with a bagful of sh*t and none in your head anymore.

Yes, I agree-great comment Laddie! Your story definitely sounds familiar and I think we've all been there at some point. The hugger in me can't help but say hugs to you though.
