I was Home

March 13, 2018

I took the day off from work and figured out how my “I hate driving more than 3 hours by myself” self was going to make it 5 hours to camp. No matter what, it was going to be worth it. I was going to see my friend, and make new ones and hopefully find something to inspire me again.

  • Bullets. My heart is so full that it’s just one giant, happy run-on sentence in my head.
  • I had never been here before, but I was home.
  • It was interesting being in a group where I was one of the people who has had diabetes for the least amount of time.
  • It was so good to see a friend I hadn’t seen in 3 years.
  • It’s been so long since I had been surrounded by a diabetes community.
  • Diabetes camp, no matter which one, gives life to so many people and friendships.
  • Sitting in a field, skipping a session and just talking about life with diabetes may have been one of my favorite moments.
  • The Diabetes (De)stress session made me realize just how lucky I am to have access to diabetes therapy.

I can’t stop reading this page from my Diabetes (De)stress session at camp this weekend. So many meanings and so many feelings. ❤️

  • I danced for exercise and for me in a room full of people.
  • I hadn’t done yoga in a year, and it felt good to do it. And then again.
  • I learned so many new tips. Some I have already implemented in my life, and some are not practical for me, and some seem overwhelming. I wrote the overwhelming ones down, and maybe someday they won’t feel that way.

Bonfire with diabuddies new & old

I started writing this post in June 2017, and has always felt unfinished. I’m going to try to wrap it up finally! In one session with Daniele, she mentioned making a list for every day. I think I’m on my third notebook since last spring, and I have become overall much more productive. It seems SO simple. But it absolutely works for me.

The reason I am FINALLY finishing this is because I’m signed up to go again this summer and I would love to have you join me! There will be hugs and smiles and tears and knowledge growth and laughs. All sorts of laughs. There will be photos that can never truly capture just how wonderful this weekend is. Come join me and see what kind of magic a weekend of adult diabetes camp can bring to your life!
