My daughter was recently intentionally left out of a dance routine because they didn't believe she "could physically handle the long & intense rehearsals that last up to 4 hours" with out having to "take care of herself". My response after counting to 10 five times, was "what child could? they don't get water breaks, bathroom breaks? what happens to the kid that may puke in the corner?"
Anyway, what I am looking for are success stories of normal children doing amazing things with diabetes. I can give them celebrity stories all day long. But I want the normal kids to shove in their faces how discriminatory they are being.
I know that my daughter can handle it, she just might have to handle it different than every one else.
If you could just post a story, I will leave your child's name out of the story and replace it with something like Pebbles or Bam-Bam.
Your responses are greatly appreciated.
