The Tightrope Concept: An Alternative to Spoon Theory

I’m amazed. My twin an I are both T1D. 16 years for me and 11 for her. We’ve played with a few ways of explaining our lives to people and came to a similar tightrope analogy mixed with some spoon theory a few months back, but without the sidewalks and parking lots. I really loved your article. I’ve never had good control, no matter how dedicated and diligent I am and that’s always added so much emotional baggage. But my new CGM has helped quite a bit, along with thinking of everything as a data point rather than a judgment. Thanks again for the great writing!
