National Diabetes Awareness Month Day 13


Tomorrow is World Diabetes Day! 

Let's make it about you! 

I have been "shari"ng for quite some time now. Through Facebook, Twitter and comments on my posts you all have touched my hearts with your stories, children and love! I feel like every time someone shares their story with me, that's my "paycheck" for writing Everyday Highs and Lows! 

So, I would like to give the rest of my readers that same treat. Today, start thinking of your post and then tomorrow let the world know! It's your turn. 

Come back to www.everydayhighsandlows.com and tell your diabetes story. Maybe it's your child's diagnosis story or your personal story of living with diabetes. It can be Type 1, Type 2 or gestational diabetes. Just post! Tell us about your heroes. Share your high or low for the day in our "What's your High" and "What's your Low" section.

If you are from another country other than the US, please post too. We love to feel connected! After all it IS called World Diabetes Day! 

Oh, and don't forget to vote: 

Thanks! Can't wait to hear all about you guys!

My son was diagnosed at the age of 4. We were very lucky in that since his dad, grandfather, great-grandfather, and a great-great aunt had the disease, we knew the sypmtoms as soon as they came into play. Yes, even with knowing the signs and being a little ahead of the game, it was still a terrible day that I will never forget. After the shock, the depression, and the realization that this was our new way of life for him, my husband and I put our best foot out there and moved forward. Now that the dust has settled and almost 5 years have passed since, I can say that Diabetes has brought the 3 of us even closer together. Yes, I do most of the care for my son's diabetes, but we still work together as a unit, managing and helping him with the disease.

My husband has had the disease since he was 12. For him, it was his disease and I never really grasped a full understanding of what life was like for a Diabetic. Now that I am more involved, I get it and that couldn't be more important for our marriage. Having patience, understanding and most of all respect for what he and my son go through is the key to our life together. This is what works for us.
