    Do you have pets? My kitty, Kumo has been my motivation for a very long time. I am a reactive hypoglycemic, have been since I was 13. I often find myself struggling to prick my finger, which I do almost 20+ times a day. I HATE eating. But I have to, 6+ times a day. It's exhausting. But in all honesty, my kitty keeps my head up. He's sweet, fluffy, cuddly, and if for some reason I fail to eat fast enough and I get so fatigued that all I have the energy to do is sleep until my blood sugar returns to normal- he is always down for a nap, no matter how long it takes (unless he's out of food, haha). I would recommend to find someone or something that makes the struggle just a little more worth it.
