Hi! Congratulations about the promotion. As I read in another comment, may be these is not the job of your life, but you´re growing, and before you expect you´ll find a place and a job to be happy. For me its a important part of our lives but not the MOST IMPORTANT…
As I see, for you Collin is the BIG reason of everything, and its a beautiful and shinning reason!!!
I completely understand your worries about him, about his way of life, and not being a " regular child" but as you said sometime to me, diabetes contributes to who he is now, and theres a price to pay… its life. Anyway I´d like to tell you that my mom always suffered much more than me about the diabetes in my life, she suffered MORE than me, because over the years I got used to deal with diabetes, and It became a way of life. Please dont suffer more than Collin will suffer… Its part of his development, and he´s not unhappier than the other kids because of it, hes just different, and in many ways Its good. Hes learning so much…
As I wrote in other comment:
Some time ago I thought diabetes in my life was a punishment but nowadays I know Its a gift of God just because I learned so much about self respect, about loving your self, I had to open a new perspective in life and may be because i´ve a cronic disease I love my life and feel like that I´ve to enjoy every moment.
Hope you feel better, and believe that Collin is the happiest kid in the world because have a mom who really cares about him!! As the Beatle song says… ALL WE NEED IS LOVE!
