Three months ago our life changed dramatically. Our six year old daughter was diagnosed with T1D. My response to the doctors was, "Well, this we can manage. it could have been a worse diagnosis." Little did I realize how much of a change this would be not just for her but the entire family. Her two older sisters have been patiŽnt and understanding of her mood changes when her sugars drop and spike, when we have to hurry home to do insulin and eat. Shelby herself has been ŗ trooper! She has tested her own blood sugar since day 1. She is just now realizing this is now her life and tells us she† "wants to be free". It is beginning to be a battle for every shot and every finger poke, which is necessary for her to stay healthy. Balancing her diet is so important and†the†less processed food she has the better her blood sugar levels stay. †She has constant body aches but then her sugars often go from 300 to 66. †
My children are my life. I want to take her pain, anxiety, and most of all her fear away. I want her to be able to go to birthday parties, slumber parties, parties at school- It is amazing how much our world involves FOOD! I walk for her, I walk for my friends' children, I walk so this can end,†the fear can go away, and they can be "free"... Of shots, pokes, lows, highs, daily body aches, and†fear.
