Tuesday’s theme of #DiabetesBlogWeek involves aspects of diabetes that I choose to keep private.
This is difficult since there are things never wanted to reveal online, or in public. I will say, however, that diabetes at six years of age, in 1945, kept me from activities that would cause my blood sugar to drop so suddenly, when I was in school. My mother had our doctor write excuses every year in elementary school so I would not be allowed to participate during play periods, or gym. l sat on the sidelines and watched. I was ignored by the other kids, and I did not make many friends. This is not something I like to discuss.
