Ozy is our diabetic cat and dealing with his health is a real challenge; I've written a little about it before. It's not the DOING of the care. It's the roller coaster of ups and downs of his uncontrolled blood glucose, the decisions about his insulin dose, his pain level, when to get help.
This is what I crave when the roller coaster stress and sleep deprivation become too much. I know they aren't "good for me" but maybe they are better for me than the stress and sleep deprivation.
