I’m tempted to say that the problem with managing diabetes in grad school is a lack of time, but I know that’s not true. I have 24 hours, just like everyone else. Really, it’s a problem of priorities.
It’s not that managing my diabetes isn’t a top priority. It’s just that everything else is top priority too.
My school work is a top priority because it’s the reason I’m in school in the first place.
But my teaching is top priority too. After all, it is my job. And I have 62 students who need me.
My relationships are also a priority. What’s the point of good grades and a good job if I wreck my relationships to achieve them? People matter most in the end, right?
How do you prioritize when everything is a top priority?
