I love reading blog posts or facebook posts from moms of T1D. They are fierce and loving and selfless. They are willing to fight for their cause, for a cure and always for their kid. They stand alone often and they stand strong.
Here is a valiant effort from a mamabear:
The misconceptions surrounding Type 1 Diabetes aren't just frustrating, they are scary. They make it less likely for a child to be diagnosed properly and early enough. They make it hard for a Type 1 child to have freedom to visit friends, go to school and participate in life without constantly having to educate the people around them and protect themselves.
So we will keep spreading the word. Making in right and fighting the fight.
