A parent reminded me of how hard it is to come to terms with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes for one's child. The parent was terribly sad and thinking about things that may or may not have caused this for her son. We talked for several hours until finally, (I hope) our conversation helped to convince her that this was not something that anyone could cause or in advertently make happen. Type 1 diabetes just is... and right now, no one understands why.
Until we have a cure, this is a beautiful reminder to be kind to yourself.
You are the only you that this world has.
You are amazing.
You are strong.
You are the entire world to one small child.
My promise to you: Type 1 diabetes will never define you or your loved one and in the hours, days, weeks or months ahead, you will discover all of this for yourself.
You can do it!
