I decided I'm just going to practice being diabetic from now.
The word "practice" implies I don't have it all figured out yet. I'm not a professional. I'm not perfect. I can mistakes -- in fact, it's expected that I'll make mistakes, because I'm just practicing.
There can be a huge amount guilt associated with being diabetic. Every blood sugar reading is either a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. We either did really well or really poorly that day with our diabetes management.
