A quick note from Gary: It’s Like Déjà vu, All Over Again*
* credit to the late, great Yogi Berra
My, how our lives have changed. Today’s world is beset with feelings of isolation. Fear over what the future may bring. Having to sacrifice enjoyable things that we used to take for granted. Simple things that now require a great deal of effort.
You may automatically think that this describes life within the confines of the coronavirus. But think about it… it also describes life as a newly-diagnosed person with diabetes. The point being that, although surviving this pandemic is no small task, we’ve been there before. We’ve felt alone and anxious about potential complications. We’ve had to reign in our free-wheeling ways. And it seems like every little thing requires advance planning. If we can survive and thrive with diabetes, we can get past the pandemic.
Something else both have in common: They both require a rational, educated approach. We need to listen to qualified professionals who know what they’re talking about, and heed their advice to the best of our ability. Learning how to self-manage (or self-prevent in the case of coronavirus) is the key to long-term survival and success.
As you have probably heard countless times, glucose control is instrumental in the prevention of coronavirus. And for those who are unfortunate enough to catch it, to ensuring a speedy recovery. If your diabetes management is anything short of optimal, please let us help. Our team is available to work with you remotely anywhere in the world. If our fees are beyond your budget, we are more than happy to accept whatever you can afford or defer payments until your situation improves.
Together we can beat this. Make that both of these.
