This month’s Diabetes Sisters theme, Menstruation, Menopause and Everything in Between is huge. It covers the majority of a woman’s life. For me, however, when dealing with diabetes, it’s the “everything in between” piece that is most challenging and confounding. Can I be honest? What’s “in between” in my life is more acne than a junior high school class picture. If there is anyone reading this who has never had a pimple, you might want to move on, this blog is not for you. For the rest of us – can we please join together in one giant “WHY ME???” I’m 48 years old and I feel like a teenager. And not in a carefree, naïve sort of way. I mean, I feel like a teenager in the drugstore, debating between salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide products. Piling on makeup in the hopes that no one will notice (or at least, not be so grossed out they have to pin their eyes on my necklace instead of my face while talking to me).
