Today's D-Blog Prompt: "Let’s borrow a topic from a #dsma chat held last September. The tweet asked “What is one thing you would tell someone that doesn’t have diabetes about living with diabetes?”. Let’s do a little advocating and post what we wish people knew about diabetes. Have more than one thing you wish people knew? Go ahead and tell us everything."
In short the one thing I would like everyone living without diabetes to know is this…………….We didn’t cause this……
Clifford wasn’t force fed sugar, he didn’t go to McDonalds daily, he didn’t eat candy, cake, or other sugary treats for breakfast. No matter what we did there was no way to prevent the attack of diabetes.
Plain and simple, I know I could tell you literally hundreds of things on what it’s like to live with diabetes, what it’s like to care for a child with diabetes, but the one misconception of diabetes I want to address is
WE DIDN”T CAUSE THIS!!
