When I originally asked Noah if he wanted to do this project, he got very excited - permission from his mother to draw on his hand! I gave him a marker, and told him to think of a word that descibes how he feels with diabetes. One word to tell people that know and that don't know what it feels like for him. He thought a minute, then put marker to hand. When he showed me his hand, with the word "stress" carefully drawn in kid scratch; I felt a lump in my throat and instantly welled up with tears. I had no idea he felt that way- he's been so brave and I told him so. It's our hope that we can reduce the stress of diabetes in his every day life. We focus so much on the clinical side of it, and sometimes forget the emotional stuff.
This is a great idea! If I did this right, my photo is now added! thanks! Karin :-)
