An amazing piece yet again frommy friend Judith at Diabetic Redemption. I had to share – This is a perfect time for reblogging.
Dear “I Wish I Didn’t Have Asperger’s,”
I wish that for you, as well. I wish there was a magic wand that I could wave, and expose, and then cure all of our disabilities, both evident, and concealed. Sadly, that is not an available option. Perhaps you can do something like what I did with my diabetes: After years of depression and non-compliance, I decided that diabetes consisted of some lessons I need to learn. Recently, when I finally reached the point of wanting to change, I could see that maybe diabetes is just what I needed, after all.
This doesn’t make anything easy, but it makes the hard times have a purpose, and that can go a long way toward making life with a chronic condition much easier to face. I wish you the very best of luck, and I hope you make great strides.
