DBlog Week - Day 7 - Diabetes Hero

Let’s end our week on a high note and blog about our “Diabetes Hero”. It can be anyone you’d like to recognize or admire, someone you know personally or not, someone with diabetes or maybe a Type 3. It might be a fabulous endo or CDE. It could be a d-celebrity or role-model. It could be another DOC member. It’s up to you – who is your Diabetes Hero??

I’m lucky, I have two diabetes heroes. My children. They are the reason I try my hardest to stay healthy and the reason I dig down deep to keep going when things get really tough. They have been so sweet and thoughtful at every turn with anything related the my diabetes. They participated in a JDRF walk with me and were so excited you would have thought I told them we were going to Sesame Place. They are always understanding when plans get diverted because of my diabetes. They are tender, aware and in tune. I am just in awe of them and couldn’t ask for more.

Yes, your blog is a "high note". Your children sound wonderful.

I have a few friends i look up to because they are always there for me but my biggest hero is nick jonas

Thank you all for commenting and sharing your thoughts on this topic. Last week was the first time in a long time that I’ve written about diabetes. It felt good to read and write about the same topics as others. I learn so much from all of you.
