Not By Choice

Last November I wrote a song for World Diabetes Day which I played on a vlog post.

It was one of the first songs I have ever written that honestly came to me on the drive home from work! After the vlog went up, I had a lot of people asking for a copy to download. As much as I liked the words and the way I sang it, it was not complete.

My Diabetic Child Grew Up

Hi. I am the mother of an adult diabetic who was 15 months of age when he was diagnosed diabetic in 1970. The technoogy in1970 was pretty archaic and didn't tell us much of anything. My son was either in an insulin reaction or had high blood sugars. There didn't seem to be any middle of the road sugars. We tested urine back then....urine blood sugar readings were astleast 4 hours behind venous blood sugar readings! I had to squeeze out his diaper to get enough urine to test his sugars...had to… Continue
