Stop scaring my kids!

Posted on September 26, 2007 at 11:16am 15 Comments

I was in our pediatrician's waiting room yesterday with my boys, Will fell off the playground at school and landed on his wrist, and there was a tv or radio on featuring health stories. Will was sitting on my lap and perked up when he heard the word Diabetes on the program. "Hey Mom, you have Diabetes," he said. I nodded and smiled and tried to distract him with a book. The tv/radio voice had been listing all the negatives of diabetes such as, "diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, or…

Hello Amy, I had gestational insuline dependant diabetes with my first child ,so I knew I would be confronted with the same issue with my second. We went ahead and had her anyways. I got checked very early on and sure enough boom there it was. Here we go again! I now am on oral meds for Type II since my second child was born. I knew the risks going into the pregnancy, even at code blue with the first. I just figured I knew how to take care of myself from experience with my first. The code blue was a freak infection that happens 1 outta 1000 pregnancies. My doctor of 30yrs in medical field had never experienced it. So I initially took action in my husbands and I's initially conversation of planning our child. My mom was a type I diabetic and died when I was 12, so. I knew the risks. A lot of people thought we were nuts,but it was worth it. She was a healthy 8lbs 9oz baby girl!! :-)

very true! its proven that diabetics can live longer healthier lives than non diabetics if they take care of themselves. i am glad to see the girl from american idol doing the one touch commercials. i know she keeps pretty quite about it but shes a good role model. she doesnt use diabetes as a crutch or for sympathy and she make it to second place in idol which shows that you can do anything even with diabetes and shes young so it will reach that demographic.

Hi Amy, thank you for reaching out to me! I'd love to be interviewed as part of your website. I love the idea of focusing of women & diabetes. I do believe we have a unique set of challenges to deal with. Please let me know how and when I can contribute! : )
