I read the About page on the www.rescuemeids.com page, a company that makes medic alert tags and some other helpful stuff for diabetics. The woman who owns the company is a mother of three. She has a sister with Type I diabetes, a son who was diagnosed at 13 months and another son diagnosed later. CRAZY!
Does this worry me? Yes. It does. I hate to think the people I love will have to deal with the same stuff I do... on the other hand, better my kids than some unsuspecting fool! Right? Could I be a help? Would it just be one more parental chain around a growing kid's neck?
Maybe, maybe not. Diabetes is a rough road--and I know at least one of my kids who would think he had died if he couldn't eat sweets whenever he wanted to [knock on wood]--not that I let him now... haha.
I realize God knows how much we can handle, but in my human frailty, I would question his accuracy if that did happen.
Tricky disease stay away from mine!
