As i sit here i just realized it was 8 years ago yesterday that Nicholas was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. How does a healthy 3 year old with no family history end up with something that will possibly stay with him for the rest of his life? I say possibly because I hope that there is a cure around in his lifetime.
I absolutely hate when someone finds out about Nicks diabetes! Not because of the illness, because of how they feel they must say "Im so sorry". What the hell are you so sorry about? He is here, he is alive and he lives his life just like every other 12 year old. Well kinda anyway, besides the finger pricks, the infusion sets, the highs and lows, the crappy A1C's the carb counting, oh my, that sure is a lot for a 12 year old to handle. My son is amazing, as Is everyone else who has this dreaded "D". To be able to do what he does and hardly ever complain about it.
Ok thats it for now, I think I've opened up a huge can of worms for myself.....vent, vent, vent
