Now that I have found the DOC I LOVE the DOC. I read so many blogs from other moms and it is great because I get the things they say and I understand the way they feel because I feel the same way.
But the blogs that really reach me and teach me are the adult Type 1s. Kim, Michael, Kerri, Kelly, Meredith and the rest are so great to read. Sometimes their perspectives are hard to read. As a mom, I try my best to keep her in range because that is my job. They give me how it really feels to be low or high which I will never know. So I read about teeth sweaters or trying to open glucose tabs with shaky hands and I learn. I see her numbers and I get a better perspective on how she really feels.
I read about successful adults who are amazing advocates. It gives me hope for my little girl's future. I read the day to day victories and just the day to day and it makes me smile.
I am now and have always have been a worrier. So when diabetes entered our lives, it sent my head spinning. I worried about her future. When I read the posts from these adults it brings me peace. I know I have an incredible girl. She amazes me daily with her strength. I read the blogs and I worry less. I know if she grows up to be anything like these people she will be just fine.
So thank you for sharing yourselves. The things that may seem minor to you are the things that make my heart sing. You have helped to heal me and have made me stronger. You have taught me how to take better care of my girl and there is no way I could thank you enough for that.
