What do I miss?

When I first read this topic, I couldn't think of much. I mean, over all, I'm happy with my life. I could go the easy route and talk about people I've lost like my grandparents, my father-in-law and my sister in law but I didn't want to go that way. And then, I had the answer. I miss not being diabetic.

Ok. I guess that's not entirely true. See, I was diagnosed as type 2 diabetic a few years ago. I was devastated. I just kept wondering why me. I mean, I didn't eat the best, but I know so many people who eat so much worse then I did and they weren't diabetic! And how was I supposed to change my eating habits to look like I needed to? I was lost. And then I took a deep breath and made the most important ( or one of them) choices in my lire. I wanted my limbs. I wanted to make happy memories with my family. I wanted to live. So I had to do it!

Since then I've lost a lot of weight and I have explored foods I never thought I ever would...and found I like them! I ended up feeling better (for the most part) then ever! So, really, it's not that I want to erase the diabetes entirely but I miss the ease of not having to think about everything I consume. I miss not having to stress about how every.single. thing effects my sugars. I miss eating some of my favorite foods like potatoes and sugars without guilt. And I miss not being such a pain to my family by making them alter their choices at for me. Oh. And I miss being able to make adjustments to our eating habits to account for being super short on cash or to save for things like holidays, birthdays and such by eating a lot of pasta and other low cost meals. That's what I miss.

But that's just me. What do you miss? Let us know in the comments!
