Color Our World BLUE!

Who else is TIRED of this disease being misunderstood??? Of people thinking that insulin is a CURE???? Of the food police who say our kids can't eat SUGAR?? Or--that if we had just fed our kids right to begin with....they NEVER would have acquired diabetes!! It's time for some AWARENESS and that's what we're going to create!!
If you are even REMOTELY as frustrated about this as the rest of us, then it's time to step up and take some action. World Diabetes Day is November 14 and it's time to make some noise. Joanne - who is an amazing, blogging D-mom, is getting price quotes on t-shirts that will support this cause and that we can all wear together and stand in SOLIDARITY on November 14th. Head to her blog- Death of a Pancreas- and let her know that you are interested in a shirt. It's time to color the world BLUE!

Oh man. it really can be frustrating. A very misunderstood disease. Even those we think understand it. Like my hubby a few weeks ago said to me when my sugar was high after breakfast, "it must have been all those carbs!" And I was like, uh, no. I took insulin for all those carbs! :) Hope your princess is having better readings. Is she off the pen? What is she doing now?

I love this. What frustrates me is those mom's who say, "If you had breast feed, maybe Christopher could have fought off diabetes". I tell them when they become a doctor, they will understand who stupid that is. I'm in.
