A Little Video Entertainment About Diabetes

Leave a comment

I could be tedious and say that I hate diabetes. Which I do. Or complain about all the worry it brings, and the lack of sleep. All the pain I have to give my child on a regular basis and how exhausting everything is. Instead I thought I would share these videos that I found online in which the author does an excellent job of telling you all of this himself.

Watching these videos, I can just imagine my little S saying these things to you 30 years from now. Of course, I am hoping for a cure between now and then.

But from the mouth of one diabetic (and the heart of a mama of a diabetic) to you, I leave you these videos. Please, take some time to watch them. They are both short. And remember sensitivity when talking to a diabetic (or mama of a diabetic). We are struggling. We want to educate, but it is exhausting to constantly combat the myths and explain the disease to you. We want to be able to live life like any other normal human being does.

So give this mama a break from the questions, and let MRMIKELAWSON explain a few things to you.

And without further ado I give you MRMIKELAWSON, from My Life as a Pincushion.

I am a "domestic engineer" who enjoys dabbling in a variety of different artistic endeavors. I am blessed to be the wife of a wonderful man, and the mother of three handsome young men. These four men are the light of my life. Our life has a different set of challenges from many people, as we live the life of a military family, supporting my husband as he serves in the Air Force. The older boys are also Irish Twins, and are almost exactly 9 months apart. S was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2011, which has brought its own challenges. T was diagnosed with hypoglycemia in September 2012. We live a hard life but one we wouldn't trade for the world. This blog is a place for me to share our life stories, my creative experiments, links to various things that I discover online, and any random thoughts that I may have. Thanks for checking it out!

I love to hear what you are thinking!
