"I have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me."
As an endurance runner, I've learned to never underestimate the power of a positive mindset. And when it comes to my journey with diabetes, that means reminding myself that "I have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me."
It's easy to fall into the trap of letting our conditions define us and control our lives. But the truth is, we have the power to choose how we let our circumstances affect us. And for me, that means staying focused on my goals and living my best life, despite my diabetes.
Now, don't get me wrong - managing diabetes is no easy feat. It requires a consistent commitment to monitoring my blood sugar levels, eating a balanced diet, and staying active. But by making healthy choices every day, I've been able to not only effectively manage my condition, but also achieve things as an endurance runner that I never thought possible.
I encourage you to adopt this mindset as well. You are more than your condition - you are a strong, capable, and determined individual. Don't let diabetes stand in the way of your dreams. Embrace it, and let it fuel your determination to live a healthy and active life.
