Dear Manny, thanks for the shout out to us mother’s. We raise children and that’s not easy. For those of us that have a type 1 child (or any condition, ie. Lisa-sorry for your loss) that could potentially do him/her harm if its not managed well (24/7) takes lots of strength. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank YOU for building such a wonderful online resource and community. TuD members have helped give me insight to all things “D”. Support, because sometimes even your closest family and friends don’t always get it. As many times I’ve explained T1, my dad told me the other day I shouldn’t have gave my son so much sugary foods, as if that caused T1 and my in-laws just think his care doesn’t have to be as invovled as I make it. TuD has also helped us decide what pump (before I was a member) and cgm we wanted. TuD has showed us that diabetes is really under our control, the endos just look at the big picture. You make your management what you want, the tools and resources are available now that just werent there in the past, I’m all for using them.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and soon to be one’s too!
