As lucky as I have been to find great online resources such as www.childrenwithdiabetes.com , juvenation, and tons of great blogs..I still have this alone feeling at times. I tell people my struggles, like Monday night and this glazed over look comes over their faces. They just don't get it. The struggle to be the perfect pancreas. When our numbers take a roller coaster ride it consumes our brain. I constantly think of numbers, insulin, carbs.. sometimes I wish our area had a local support group. I have yet to find one. This is something I've been praying about for us. Just to have people who understand. I really try to not bore my friends and coworkers with all the details of "D"and how it affects us..but I cant help it. It is constantly in my brain.
Thank goodness that as much of a part of Bryson's life it is, it never seems to bother his interaction with other kids. He doesn't mention it and neither do they. They discuss Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Fineas and Ferb, SillyBandz, etc..but diabetes rarely creeps in his conversations. Isn't the simplicity of friendships in kids awesome??
