If you could personify your diabetes or that of your loved one, what would it be like? What would it look like, what would it say, what kind of personality would it have? Use your imagination and feel free to use images, drawings, words, music, etc. to describe it.
I don't know if I have ever properly introduced my diabetes to you. If everyone could please welcome Morty. By please welcome, I mean make sure you pay him heaps of attention because he gets cranky if you ignore him.
Why Morty? Basically my diabetes is Voldemort. Aged 3. Just to creep you out, someone actually imagined Morty as a toddler already. I did warn you, so don't come to me with your nightmares.
Morty likes his nap-time. He has a favourite song. Low,by Flo-Rida.
My diabetes is a bit needy. He requires attention all the time. And constant care-taking. I'm pretty sure I was making my own bed at 3, but he still requires me to do absolutely everything for him. "Give me insulin, give me food, It's 3am and I'm supposed to be asleep but FEED ME NOW, take me for a walk". You can't mistake that whiny voice. He's a bit spoilt.
He's also got a bit of a mean streak. Got a little bit of that psychopath vibe going on. I can't turn my back on him, because he might try to kill me. It's a little unnerving really. If I could leave him in a dumpster I would.
But he also has a softer, giving side. He has some great life-coaching skills. And he's a bit of a social butterfly.
World, meet Morty. Morty, play nice with the world.
