Yes, You Can | Charming Diabetes

Yes, You Can

Let’s be honest, no matter how optimistic I am, this is a chronic illness. Day in, day out. It can be tough. There are days where I’m just like, “I Can’t”.

I can’t check my blood sugar again today.

I can’t handle this for the rest of my life.

I can’t do one more thing for my diabetes.

I can’t get up early to exercise today.

I can’t go through the drive through and NOT order fries.

I can’t write down my blood sugars.

I can’t deal with this right now.

I can’t pull out my meter and check my blood sugar in front of all these people.

I can’t do that with diabetes.

I can’t wear this pump with my bathing suit.

I can’t explain how much insurance frustrates me.

I can’t do math.

I can’t I can’t I can’t. Literally. I cannot. do. diabetes. for real.

Sometimes I just have to remind myself…




And if I can do it, so can you!

If I dig down deep, underneath all the excuses I make for myself, I know that I can do what needs to be done. All I have to do is look at a gorgeous sky like that to know that God knows what he’s doing. He has a plan and I am part of it, along with my faulty pancreas.

I read somewhere that if we all took our problems and threw them in a heap for everyone to see, we’d reach in and snatch our own up as fast as we could. Everyone has battles, Diabetes just happens to be mine.  I believe deep down that as much as I might hate it, God has equipped me to deal with it.

Because I know that I, for one, need to be reminded of this, I’m giving this one away as a FREE iPhone wallpaper!! The next time diabetes, or whatever challenge you might be up against, has got you down, you just have to pick up your phone and remember: YES, YOU CAN!

Go ahead and grab it now. Set your goals and do what needs to be done. Yep, You can do it!
