I have Hope

(Mayra) #1

Hey guys tomorrow will be a week since my daughter was diagnosed , this is still new to me and I’m still scared but I’m no longer hopeless… if I don’t have hope for her who will… thank you guys I read a lot of these post and I now have hope… I’m still sad but we will all beat this some day and a cure will be found !!! Be positive and love the life you are given … no time to dwell and be negative … Lisabella will live a long and normal life because I will contribute to that … she’s my daughter and even if we are all scared we also have the will power to fight for who we love !

You have a great perspective on this! I am a T1, diagnosed at 9 and am now an adult! I contribute a lot of my success as a diabetic to having super supportive parents who never let diabetes define me. We worked hard at it, and they taught me how to care for myself so that I didn’t miss out on childhood. I just had to be a bit more diligent. Keep at it. It does get “easier” over time with trial and error! You will do great!
