I’m participating in this year’s Diabetes Blog Week. Thanks to Karen Graffeo of Bittersweet Diabetes for organizing this event.
Today’s topic is “find a friend” and asks us to introduce a blogger others may not know.
Many of you have probably come across Laura Houston’s blog, Houston We Have a Problem. If you haven’t, now is your chance. It’s very worth your while. Laura’s son Nate, now three, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 14-months-old. Shortly thereafter one of Laura’s daughters became ill with what was recently diagnosed as Crohn’s disease.
I love Laura’s blog because it’s totally straightforward. She doesn’t waste words. It’s a completely honest account of her life as the mother of a small child with type 1 diabetes (and all the other crap she deals with).
To manage what Laura manages you’ve got to be extraordinary. And she is. Read her post Insulin Overload and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
