HAWMC: Need vs. Want vs. Love

April 13, 2012

10 Things I Couldn’t Live Without. Write a list of the 10 things you need (or love) most.

Need
1. Insulin
2. I choose a pump for insulin delivery, but needles would work as well
3. Glucose Meter
4. Strips
5. Lancets
6. Glucose
7. Water

Want
8. Dexcom
9. Artificial Pancreas
10. To always feel the highs and lows coming

Love
1. Computer – it’s where so many of my fellow PWDs live
2. To stay complication free
3. The coverage my insurance does give, even though I wish it was more
4. The knowledge that comes with diabetes and how it has helped me to stay healthy for nearly my whole life
5. The ability to do ANYTHING I want (except produce my own insulin)

The things that I need to survive make a boring list, but the things I love are what I count my blessings for every day, and the things I want I hope for every day.  If you want to see others’ lists, check out the WEGO Health Facebook page

    I love your #10! It’s amazing to me how I can be experiencing that sense of calm and lightness when my blood sugar is right in range and how very quickly I can suddenly be sweaty and shaky. Even after being reassured of a stable blood sugar by my Dexcom. Forewarning about lows would be *great*.

I'd love to hear what you think about my blog thoughts!
