Dive In or Acclimate...

NaBloPoMo... day 11

Today's prompt: Do you like to dive into things or take your time getting acclimated?

Head first baby! I dive right in. I am one of those "go for it and if I screw it up then I go back and look at the directions" kind of gals.

The hubbs says "I know just enough to be dangerous". Yep! That's me :) Grab the hammer and get to work!

Extra screws... usually!

Head scratchin and language not suitable for Sunday... always!

But we're not talking about THAT. We're talking about diving in.

When it came to fixing the kitchen faucet... my git-er-done personality didn't work out so well(except I did get a new faucet).  But when it comes to Type One... do we really have a choice?

It takes months to get "acclimated"(if there is such a thing).  Do we have months? I'm thinking no. Yet, it is probably the one area in our lives that required the most acclimation.

Justin's diagnosis was definitely one situation when my "dive right in" personality had me torn. I was forced to listen to that little voice in my head. No, not the one that makes me look nuts. I'm talking about the one that makes me think twice, second guess every choice I make and worry that I will choose wrong.

After all... Justin can't be replaced at Home Depot like the faucet.

T1D comes into our lives and changes everything. It changes the way we handle things and it doesn't give us a choice in the matter.

That's just how it rolls.

So what do you do? Dive or acclimate?

Ah, yes...the war between the dive right in self and the acclimate self in the world of D. You have to dive right in but it takes time to acclimate so you feel like you know what you're doing!
So wish Home Depot carried pancreases!! They have everything else!! ;)

I'm a total "diver" too...I bet you knew that about me though. I would curse right along-side ya girl.

It is the "cowgirl" and "stripper" in us...oh wait...the "stripper shoe wearer" ~ sorry. :)

Why am I not surprised you are a diver ;). I can see how both would serve well as a pseudo-pancreas, but the point is you just need to bring your 'A' game. Which you will, because your are awschum!!!!

I can see you're a diver, thank goodness for that though because there doesn't seem to be another option with a d dx! I am not sure what I am, maybe that means I am an acclimate, and I guess I kind of got to with dating a person with d before marrying, then being married before ever even thinking that we could have a child with d...hmm...interesting to think about :)

I'm a diver. I think it helps me cope. :)
