I AM THE MOTHER TOO OF A DIABETIC CHILD!!!
I tend to agree with otter, and after 5 years of being a mom of a child with diabetes, choose not to live in fear but to empower my son that he has the tools, fortitude and heart to be his own pancreas. in todays age of better insulin and treatment wallowing over donating your kidneys or heart to your child who may never develop complications is ridiculous.
What a POWERFUL message!
This is incredibly powerful. It speaks for itself -- comment would be completely superfluous.
heart breaking.. the pain in these moms voices, makes me want to reach out (as a once "diabetic child" who is now an adult) and tell them no matter what to remember their child is a child, just like all other children, just because they have diabetes doesn't negate the fact that they are still a child/teenager/adult. The video is poignant but I sure wish they were saying "a child who has diabetes" instead of "a diabetic child"....doesn't much matter if they are just words, but unfortunately they carry meaning to some
I'm sad from a couple of perspectives
First, these mothers are top Mums and care so much. We often forget the toll on those that care about us so much
Second, a lot of the things they are so scared about could be aided by a CGM or similar management devices. C'mon governments and insurance companies, please help those with diabetes that need it the most!
