Happy Friday, Friends!
Below, find a link to a blog I follow. The link will take you to a post I really agree with. Sometimes when we tell someone that Michael has diabetes, they reply with a story about how diabetes has affected someone they know. Sometimes these stories are uplifting stories and sometimes they are not. Please refrain from sharing your more horrific experiences with diabetes.
I am capable of crying for my son just because I'm his mom. I do not need fodder to cry over based on someone else's stories of how horrible diabetes is. I do research. I do know that we're going to have to fight for a good, healthy future for Michael. But believe me, I've got my boxing gloves on and I'm ready to fight for that good future. I don't need to be daily reminded of the horrible wake diabetes can leave.
I welcome all stories related to how someone has adapted their lifestyle to include diabetes management, and I welcome all stories depicting how someone has lived a full, successful life despite diabetes.
Until Next Time,
Much love, Reba
