So some of you have probably heard me talk of Jacob and his insecurity about his diabetes. He decided to have two friends over today. He just started a new high school this year so new faces and very few know about his diabetes. He was really nervous about having friends up and sharing his news. So I bring down brownies, drinks and Jacobs PDM and tester. He says I got this mom. So like any mom I hang on the stairs to eavesdrop! Jacob very calmly says, guys I am not sure you know but I have diabetes. One of his friends goes type 1 or type 7, obviously trying to lighten the mood. I didnt catch all of the conversation but one must of asked how he got it and Jacob said something about being swedish and ( no offense those with type 2) that fat people get type 2! the other boy says most of the older people in his family have type 2, so did he just call all of his new friends family fat! He must of showed them his omnipod and tested, I heard the beeps. He said it wasnt contagious as I heard the mention of blood and they went on to killing in black ops or what ever it was that they were playing. I would call it a major victory and tonight I will have to stifle a told you so moment. all is well!
