Let’s Talk About Diabetes This Week
Happy Diabetes Blog Week, y’all. My gift to you is I’m going to blog every day this week about diabetes. I get emailed frequently asking why I don’t blog more about direbetes and my answer is simple: I don’t really know.
Zoe has Type One Diabetes, not me. Do I blog about her numbers? Her highs? Her lows? Do I just blog about how it makes me feel as a caretaker? When I just talk about how Direbetes makes ME feel, I usually end up feeling like an ass because yeah, “Diabetes makes me sad/frustrated/want to drink my feelings” so I simply DON’T blog about it.
But I think I should. Because the Internet is about sharing.
Day #1 of D-Blog Week is Find A Friend.
My #1 go to d-mom person is Bigfoot. Her son is around Zoe’s age and has direbetes too. I can email her about how dumb diabetes is and she agrees. I’m trying to convince her to move to Colorado so we can start a diabetic commune, a save haven for pancreatic challenged children and their parents. Basically this just means I could leave Zoe with someone who would know what to do. And there would probably be homemade granola.
My # 1 go to site for kids/d info is Children With Diabetes. Someone sent me this link when Zoe was first diagnosed and while I was on the verge of a breakdown, I lived on this site. I found it comforting the way the facts were laid out so straight forward.
Let’s Go Diabetes! Or something like that.
