Mom Wants A Diabetes Cure

7 year Anniversary :( Eat, Dose, and Be Merry :)

On Friday, November 27th, Supernanny will be helping parents regain control of their family after their 5 year old son is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

Oddly enough, this is bringing tears to my eyes because I'm thinking back to the struggles my own family and I had when we dealt with our newly diagnosed son. You would think by now I would be more steeled against being emotional over it.

But, no....the feelings are still raw after all these years.

Wow....... It hit me right this second that it has been 7 years this week since Brendon was diagnosed with diabetes. If it weren't for writing about the episode, the anniversary reminder would've come and gone without notice.

He was diagnosed just a few days before Thanksgiving. That was nothing to be thankful for that year.

But, each year afterward, we were thankful that he was able to regain his health and vigor and live a semi-normal life.

Well, let me fix that....HE was able to live a TOTALLY normal life because he was never phased by having diabetes. He played and did everything he was meant to do in life.

He still lives life on his own terms. Sometimes to our frustration as parents, LOL. But, I wouldn't want my little man to be limited by anything at all....not by diabetes....or his own imagination.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Eat, Dose, and Be Merry :D

  • Nice to hear from you again, Shannon. It hasn't been quite as long for me (4 years), but when I hear of a newly diagnosed T1 kid my heart just sinks. Almost instantly I'm brought back to when Riley was first diagnosed and all the pain that came with that. It still amazes me how quickly all those painful feelings can come back and take your breath away.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was great.

  • I wrote a long post about the SuperNanny episode. Gah! I can't believe they were force feeding that kid.

    I just launched a new blog called D-Mom Blog, which I hope is a resource to other parents of diabetic children. I hope to develop relationships with more parents.

    (I've included you in my blogroll already.)

  • Very pathetic for parents as they discover such life chronic diseases come to their child's life to steal the happiness and normalcy ...but there is better medical support and help and parents are coping up much better.Electronic Medical Records

  • As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from diabetes , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of diabetes and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he had difficulty eating, and he always complain of stomach pain and he always Urinat often . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to diabetes . I never imagine diabetes has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. diabetes has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098765@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
