One little girl - Day 25 WEGO Health Blog

I'm participating in the WEGO Health Blog's 'Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge' where bloggers are asked to write about their conditions. The goal is to write from these 30 health related prompts for 30 days in April.

Today is day number twenty five.
Third person post. Write about a memory you have but describe it, using the third person. Use as many sensory images (sights, sounds, textures, etc) as you can. Don't use /I' or 'me' unless you include dialogue.

One little girl

There once was a little girl who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was six years old. She was confused and upset and didn't know what was happening to her. Neither did her mother. Neither did her family. It was night and it was dark and that night seemed to last forever. The hospital days that followed were full of learning and doing, and realizing it wouldn't ever be the same again.

Lest someone think it all ends badly, the little girl grew, and learned and accepted. And so did the mother. And so did the family.

Aw - love your attitude. "Accepted". Yes.
