To help us celebrate National Nurse’s Week and Mother’s Day, Candy Hearts blog author Wendy Rose wrote a guest post about how her roles as an RN and a mom influence one another. It’s an incredibly honest and heartfelt post! Read the full article at Discuss Diabetes here.

I apologize for bringing non diabetes conversation here, but when I was trying to figure out where I can get support this was the first place I thought of.
As many of you know, I have been alienated from my children for nearly 10 years but maintained a very close and deep relationship with them. However, 7 weeks ago this Friday their mother went to court and said that I was pressuring them and lawyered her way into getting me only supervised visitation. I have had unlimited joint… Continue

Today is Parental Alienation Awareness Day. I dedicate everything to my amazing and beautiful daughters that I miss with every breath I take. Please support us and post a message about parents kept from their children and the pain they endure. I would be so grateful if you pushed this message on to others!!!! I love you girls!
Imagine first ANYONE telling you that you may not communicate with your teenage child because you decided to speak to your child about divorce and maybe (whilst… Continue

Shooting at the walls of sanity
I am the worrier!"
I know, I have completely ruined a good song but the melody kept playing in my head after I wrote the first draft of this post so now you can have it play through your head as well!
I worry. I case you have missed that from other posts, its a fact. I can worry about anything and anyone. I am "the worrier"! It takes nothing to set me off. My mind is incredibly creative and I really wish I could harness its… Continue

Yesterday, the whole family went to the ADA's family skating event in Falmouth. Well, as far as the skating was concerned, Eric and I both weren't very good and so didn't last long, although my husband and the older kids had a ball. But after the skating came the Q&A, which was basically a panel of teenage athletes with Type 1 diabetes (plus the parents of the youngest child on the panel, a 9-year-old girl) fielding questions about how they handled their diabetes in the context of sports.… Continue

I have been trying to write this for a while now and it has been harder than I thought it would be. I thought it’s cathartic and will be good for you…. it isn’t. You see I want to tell you about my Mom who lived a simple life doing the best she could as a parent, but I keep getting overwhelmed by her death. I’m going to start with that and just get it out of the way, so bare with me. My Mom died 9 years ago over the Christmas holidays. In fact it has… Continue

I was talking with Alex about how I would be so happy if a cure for diabetes was discovered. He asked me what I would do if a cure was found and I told him I would do the "happy dance". "What would you do, Alex?" "I would run outside and yell I'M FREE, I'M FREE!" This made us both fall on the floor in fits of giggles.

Alex getting out of the bathtub last night: Mom, what are all those black spots on my fingers? One look at my face and he said, "oh, from all the finger pricks!"

Apparently, I was in a melancholy diabetes mood when I said this to my 7 year old son at dinner the other night:
me: Honey, you know that mom would take away your diabetes and give it to me if I could.
Alex: (expression of disbelief and panic) WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT????? I like my diabetes. I like myself just like I am.
me: Really? Well that's great but I would still take it away if I could.
A couple of silent moments go by........
