Today's Prompt: Keep it to Yourself. Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see. What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet? Or from your family and friends? Why is it important to keep it to yourself? Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won't tell them.)
"What you don't know can't hurt you". Hopefully, you will never know. Type 1 Diabetes is relatively rare. Yet, I knew two people that have it before his diagnosis. But I didn't know them, not really. Until you live with this, you don't know. And likely, I'll not be the one making sure you feel the full force of knowing.
It's not that, moving forward, I will write only of the good things, of our successes. Some of what we experience might help others, might raise awareness, might save one child. If I thought that going Full Monty would be of benefit, I would. But the truth is, most people don't want to know, not really. They want to be assured he is okay and we are handling it. And we are. But that's not the whole story.
