As I did last year, I am letting Caleb author the Diabetes Blog Week posts.
Since Caleb has no appreciation or lack of thereof, for that matter, for the differences among people living with diabetes, there isn’t much to say on yesterday’s topic. He just simply isn’t aware enough about what is different about being type 1 versus type 2 or being an adult versus a child versus a caregiver. He doesn’t really care. I see that as a good thing. At his age he’s just living life, not focusing on it and I think that’s appropriate for an eight year old.
He was, however, willing to write a letter to diabetes. Here is is:
Dear Diabetes, Sometimes you get annoying like when I am high or low. Sometimes I wish I didn't have diabetes. It really sucks, but I got used to you. I want a cure. Please go away. It would help.
P.S. I want to let you know you’re not going to bring me down, - I’ll always be standing up!
