I’ve recently been very brave (for me) and started to do YouTube videos, and the reason I have forced myself out of my comfort zone, is that there was one particular video that I really wanted to do. I wanted to do a video to reassure those parents of children newly diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes that it does get easier. Well basically, I wanted to tell them (or you if you are the ‘them’) what I needed to hear when my eldest son was diagnosed and didn’t.
Finley was diagnosed not long after his fifth birthday, and he almost died. I’ll explain more about that in a post coming soon about Type 1 diabetes signs and symptoms, and our diagnosis. Please excuse the following video, I am very new to doing them, plus I was trying really hard not to get emotional as this is so important to me.
Saying that my son has been diabetic for longer in his life than he has not been diabetic, was the bit that got me the most emotional!
I hope this helps even one parent to feel a little better.
I will soon be doing some more Type 1 Diabetes posts, including some help to make their school life at primary school as easy and smooth as possible, as far as their medical needs go. Feel free to contact me on here. or to follow me on any of my social media.
