    Advice Needed

    It's been a long time coming.

    We find, or maybe even create, other issues to distract us from the seemingly inevitable truth that one day, we will lay to rest the body of our youngest child, ravaged by a lifetime of type 1 diabetes. The fear is a constant in our lives. She's too old to be controlled and too...

    My Son

    I have diabetes. And I pasted it on to my son. He was only 5 when he got it. He is 11 now. It hurts me to see him like this. I know how hard it is for me.

    I'm waiting for the day I get the call

    that my aunt has passed. Obviously people in this group understand what diabetes is, but so many people just don't get it. They don't understand what can happen. They just think diabetes is all about eating fruits and vegetables and stabbing themselves with a needle and...

    I Do.....love Someone With Diabetes
