You’ve got this!
Don’t be scared
my dear child
don’t be scared
you’ve got this
you can do this!
i know diabetes can be frightening sometimes
and frustrating too
those lows can feel so bad
you don’t know if you’ll ever get through
sometimes diabetes really kicks us in the butt
and challenges us to the max
one thing right after another
it feels like it couldn’t be any worse..
but that’s when you’ve gotta say,
i’ve got this diabetes
I’ve got this!
sometimes diabetes really beats us up
and you might feel sad, crabby and miserable too
but you must be ready to say,
diabetes, you will NOT get the best of me
no matter how hard you seem to try!
some days diabetes will not cooperate
no matter what you do
these are the days i really lose my patience
and it takes a walk
or cuddle with my puppy
to get me through
but when things go smoothly
i don’t get woken up in the night
my bg’s stay within range
making me feel alright
these are the days i celebrate
the ones i really cherish
and make me feel like
everything is going to be alright
and it is
it really is!
you see i’ve been doing this 26 years now
a little longer than some
and what I’ve learned
is to keep on going
lift your chin
laugh as much as you can
find comfort in the things you love
because you’ve got this baby
you’ve got this!
