I was never really the type of person to talk a lot about myself and my feelings (except maybe sports, I was pretty cocky when it came to that). Once I was diagnosed, I was still a little shy about my diabetes and telling people, but I got over that within a few months. The main reason was because I wanted to educate people about diabetes, so I was always willing to answer questions or talk about the disease. Obviously, once I started the blog almost 10 years ago, I’ve talked about a lot of stuff, but there are a few areas that I haven’t really shared much about.
The one topic related to diabetes that I don’t speak about much, almost zero amount of times, is – sex.
There are a couple reasons. First, my mother and I think my mother-in-law sometimes, read my blog. I just had my first child, so yes, I think everyone knows how that happened, but at the same time, this isn’t 50 Shades of Grey Diabetes.
There are a lot of specific topics in the sex realm that can be talked about, but I haven’t spent much time on it (even though I think that maybe these topics should be discussed more frequently):
- How to deal with a low blood sugar when the mood is hitting
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Where the hell does my pump go?
- Is it ok to disconnect during?
- Many more topics…
