We're More Than Our Numbers.
I'm working on recapping the ePatient Connections conference from last week, but what resonated most for me was hearing patients reiterate "We're more than our diseases!" And it struck me that I'm constantly judging myself on those tougher diabetes moments, and refusing to celebrate the successes. I need a little more celebration.
I know my cumulative health is what doctor's pay attention to, but sometimes I just want to sing from the rooftops about that nice, round 100 mg/dL. Blood sugars that are out of range get all the attention; it's time for me to feel good about the wheels that don't squeak. ;)
