2015 DBlog Week: Keep it to Yourself

While I’m pretty transparent about our life, there are some things I just don’t feel comfortable talking about here. To be honest, I don’t actually know what all of them are, because I’m pretty sure many of them haven’t even happened yet.

That being said, I just want you to know I understand.

If you’ve ever had to make the choice between a tank of gas and a test strip copay, I understand.

If you’ve ever sat up in the middle of the night, fretting over a glucose level while eating through an entire shelf in your pantry, I understand.

If you’ve ever cried for no reason, but for a million reasons at the same time, I understand.

If you’ve ever stopped believing in your dreams, I understand.

If you’ve discovered new ones you never wanted to find, I understand.

If you’ve watched life wander by, and wondered if you’d ever find joy in it again, I understand.

If you’ve ever looked in the mirror, and stared confused at the stranger in front of you, I understand.

If you’ve ever felt alone in crowded spaces…or crowded in quiet places, I understand.

If you’ve ever been stuck at a crossroads, and opted to remain stagnant instead, I understand.

If you’ve ever been terrified to move, to breathe, or to speak for fear your world would crash, I understand.

I show you the stuff I want you to see, but there’s a story behind the silence.

Thank you for understanding.

    All of you parents have the issue of sharing your life while not violating the privacy of your children. Believe me when I say it is much easier having T1 than being the parent:-)

    Knowing that there is a story behind the silence…. without actually knowing the story… is enough. I’m sure this post has comforted (or will comfort) many, many people who couldn’t find anyone else who understood these struggles you speak of.
