Recently I wrote that we, as parents, do not know what it is like to have diabetes. We care for, administer, sleep-walk, and do all sorts of things for our children with diabetes but we do not have it.
So here is the question that can surely help others and I mean can TRULY HELP OTHERS, so please consider hitting reply and adding your advice here.
Those who have been ‘at this’ for any length of time surely get to the point where they can take more. As Popeye used to say, “That’s all I’s can stand, I can’t stands no more.” He of course would reach into his and take out his spinach and that is how he was able to move forward.
How do you move forward. What do you do to ‘get away’ from everything. We DO HAVE that ability. We may surely think about diabetes all the time, but every now and again we need to just………just……..do something to take a break……..to get away.
What is that for you?
What would you tell a new mom that she ‘must do’ to keep her sanity? Sitting in the ‘advice chair’ and speak to someone who has only been at this for a month or two or six—-share what ‘saves you’?
What is your ‘spinach’?
