It’s amazing this Diabetic Online Community – the DOC.
The people you can find, who say to you –
You mean you do that too?
You have that too?
Your child does that?
You got diagnosed that way?
You reacted that way?
You felt that way?
There is such joy in that, finding someone who gets it.
When Grace was first diagnosed, I wasn’t sure who to reach out to, who I would ever connect with, who would understand this new normal we are now in. Honestly, I thought I was alone. I was the only one in the entire world who had a 6 year old daughter who was just diagnosed Type 1.
In the WHOLE. WIDE. WORLD.
Ok, turns out that’s not true at all. But I believed it as if it was.
That was really hard. REALLY.
Now I find moms, dads, people with Type 1 – all over this community.
Now I don’t feel so alone.
That is really good. REALLY.
