So I am an enneagram type 1 personality, probably too driven, too A type and all of the baggage that comes with that profile. However on the good side it means that I do try and do things properly. Tears, blood, sweat, but properly.
Luckily the kaleidscope is one that loops and swerves and the track gets changed just at the point that you think it is all just too much.
Life for a diabetic especially type 1’s is unrelenting. I honestly am impressed daily by the bravery. The way that the fear is faced.
Recently I have had 2 of my young patients “do battle” with their mums against DKAs – both sets won.
