The most awesome thing we've done despite diabetes............ Speaking from Clifford's point of view here, there are many things despite diabetes he has done. But the most awesome would be take on a new sport, basketball!!! For the most part D hasn't affected Clifford playing basketball, except one time he kept dropping low. Despite D Clifford has put his all into learning a new sport and having fun with his friends. D didn't stop him doing what he wanted to do. And despite diabetes this Spring he wants to take on another new sport, Soccer!!
From my point of view as his mom. The most awesome thing I've done despite diabetes, is to keep him a happy, healthy, friendly child. It's been a challenge, his behavior has been a challenge, but in all we are doing good. Despite diabetes he's been a good big brother to all his siblings. (for the most part ;) ). And despite diabetes we are still living our life the way we want with a few new things.
So despite diabetes you can live a normal, healthy life. It just takes a lot of work, blood (literally), sweat and tears. But in all it's worth it to keeping yourself, and your loved ones happy and healthy.
