Every time I play this particular game it reminds me of diabetes. That last screen where the area you have to hold it in is so paper thin. Imagine that tiny little area is your diabetes management complication-free. A slight touch too much on one side or the other sends you flying. That's what diabetes is like for me. There is a fine line where I'm supposed to exist all day every day of my life. If I cough or sneeze I'm out of the safe zone and spinning wildly out of control desperately trying to regain the balance back. Any little hiccup and you're out. In real life, I've never been able to hold it within that line for very long. It's as if managing diabetes could be related to standing still versus walking. If you stand still, not a whole lot changes. You might shift your weight a little bit here and there but nothing so drastic. Take your diabetes for a walk and then try and manage it. With each step your weight shifts back and forth forever and ever. One step your high, the next your low, the next your high and so on. That fine line is nearly impossible to stay in. It's inhuman! I've heard a lot of analogies relating to something like this. It's like a tightrope, or a unicycle or anything that requires incredible acts of balance.
I wish I could hold my breath and not move for the rest of my life and stay safe in the comfort of that thin little line.
