So I said I would have some encouraging words to say about diabetes as an invisible illness. That right there is what makes it a bit easier to deal with. It is, for the large part, invisible. I'm not forced to share my moments and details with the world. There have been many jobs I've had for the entire duration and some people I worked with never knew. I like the thought that I seemed normal enough that nobody questioned it. It may be fake but it fills me with a few moments of reprieved thoughts.
