Being a person with both autism and diabetes has its ups and downs. I do the best I can to sail through the waters smoothly. I am a good person, a human being just like everyone else, not a hopeless case. I am determined to overcome the obstacles of my conditions. I can do anything!
Those of you who deal with both conditions, a diagnosis is not the end of the world. You can still lead a normal life just like everyone else. Don’t let anyone or anything get in the way of success in whatever you do. Don’t worry about what other people say or think. People who discriminate or underestimate you are wrong. They’re not in your shoes.
Diabetes is a life and death disease. Don’t be scared if something happens like a low or high reading or something else. No need to panic or stress over it. Zeus can hold his lightning bolts. Don’t be afraid to speak up. Overanalyzing situations wastes time. Fear is the worst enemy. Autism causes stress, but that causes hyperglycemia. In a stressful situation, use a positive technique: stop and think or some other coping techniques. Take care of your diabetes properly. Do not do anything that will endanger or jeopardize your health. Improper healthcare equals death.
The keys to a successful life are bravery, confidence, and faith.
Be a warrior!
