My doctor confounds me..he really does.
I have just left the Dr's office.
During the course of my visit, he opened a tab on his computer screen and muttered..."You've cured your diabetes"
I raised a quizzical brow. I was not expecting that.

I am used to his tendency to hyperbole, I muttered yeah!! I got new Islets of Langerhans for my birthday a couple of days ago.
We both laughed
He out of genuine mirth I assume
Me rather ruefully.

I want to believe that I have taken my diagnosis and the new normal it necessitates in stride.
In a lot of ways I have.

However in that brief period between when the sound waves of his words hit my eardrums, and when my brain analysed it for context, I dared to believe that he meant I was cured, yes truly cured of what I have come to accept as my new normal.
