I have a dear friend that is walking down the path of being newly diagnosed. And sadly, I know that there are many, many more on the same road.
My heart goes out to her and to them. I know that it takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to gain footholds into the world of type 1 diabetes. A week later and you are already smarter, a month more and you are stronger and at that six month mile marker, you are truly a t1d champion.
Yet, as much as day one, your heart is still very broken.
From a place of love and with personal experience, I send this thought. It's ok to take time to heal. The journey is different for everyone. Only you will know when you are there.
