My son Jordan has been a type 1 diabetic since he was 2 years old. He is now 14. It is acutally harder every year "we" have diabetes. I say we becasue when he was diagonsed- I feel as if I have it along with him. I only wish it was me and not him. The lows are heart breaking and the scarest thing to watch them go through. In the last five years we became invouled with the local JDRF and that has been great. At least we feel like we are doing something to help find a cure. Jordan is currently going through a "non-diabetic" lifestyle. He is not taking care of himself like he should.
