"I was always afraid of needles - so much so, that every time I was vaccinated, I would pass out. When I was diagnosed at age 15 and the doctor explained that I would have to get injections everyday, and not only that - I would have to give them myself - I thought that she was joking. No way was I going to prick myself. But some 50 thousand given injections later, I can tell you how wrong I was...

I never complain about diabetes. I'm never asking myself, 'why me?', because that's not constructive. It will solve nothing, it will just put you in a bad mood. I just take care of my diabetes as best as I can. As simple as that

Although I think that you should always strive to have a good sugar values, you should be happy if you achieve that goal most of the time. It's hard to be 100% perfect so why be sad over that? Just be happy with what you achieved.."

 

"Zmeraj sem se bal igel - in to toliko, da sem ob vsakem cepljenju zaradi strahu padel v nezavest. Ko sem pri 15 letih dobil diagnozo diabetesa in mi je zdravnica razložila, da ne samo, da bom dobival injekcije vsak dan, ampak, da si jih bom dajal sam, sem čisto zares mislil, da se šali. Niti slučajno se namreč nisem mislil sam špikati. No, po kakih 50000 injekcijah vam lahko povem, kako sem se motil...

Nikoli se ne pritožujem zaradi diabetesa. Nikoli se ne sprašujem, zakaj ravno jaz, ker je to nekonstruktivno. Rešilo ne bo nič, samo v slabo voljo te lahko spravi. Jaz samo skrbim za nivo sladkorja po svojih najboljših močeh. Enostavno

Čeprav mislim, da si moraš stalno prizadevati za čimboljše vrednosti sladkorja, moraš biti srečen, če ti to uspeva le večino časa. Težko je namreč biti 100% perfekten - zakaj bi bil torej slabe volje zaradi tega? Bodi srečen s tem, kar si dosegel."
