Message Monday – #DBlogWeek

Lets kick off the week by talking about why we are here, in the diabetes blog space. What is the most important diabetes awareness message to you? Why is that message important for you, and what are you trying to accomplish by sharing it on your blog? (Thank you, Heather Gabel, for this topic suggestion.)

I have been quiet on here lately but still want to participate in #DBlogWeek.

So it’s been just over two years since my daughter was diagnosed. And while things are going really good, there is still so much misunderstanding from the people around us. We don’t go around talking about it too much, my daughter really doesn’t like to bring attention to it and I am trying to respect that, but it’s hard sometimes to not share and not explain.

I think the most important message is not “We need a cure” (which we do-I pray for one each day). I think the most important message is we need compassion and understanding. Be kind to each other because you don’t know what is going on under the surface and a little kindness can go a long way.

Thanks everyone – continue reading the great post out there this week!
