Diabetes sucks. There I said it and it about summarizes all emotions that have occurred in the last four days.
Friday I heard about the five, count them that is F-I-V-E young ones who died because of Type 1 Diabetes. There was a young woman who went into DKA while her parents were on vacation. The callous reaction was to say, well she should have caught that she was high and treated. What was wrong with her? Reality--some people go into DKA very easily and the situation can quickly escalate out of control especially with no one to help you.
There was the nine year old little one who became so depressed that she took her own life. She was nine! She was so devastated by this disease that she ended her life? Heartbreaking for those of us reading about it but the pain for the parents must be unimaginable.
