DIABETES BLOG WEEK: Keep it to Yourself – Tuesday 5/12

Diabetes blog weekDAY 2 TOPIC: Many of us share lots of aspects of our diabetes lives online for the world to see.  What are some of the aspects of diabetes that you choose to keep private from the internet?  Or from your family and friends?  Why is it important to keep it to yourself?  This is not an attempt to get you out of your comfort zone.  There is no need to elaborate or tell personal stories related to these aspects.  Simply let us know what kinds of stories we will never hear you tell, and why you won’t tell them.

Day 2 of the 6th annual blog week is listed above.  There is an absolute-ness of things that I will not write about.  It’s kind-of-a line that I have drawn for myself.  My kids have asked me not to write about certain aspects, and I have adhered to their wishes.  If I choose to write about things on my mind….it does not mean I have to share things about them.

It is the same with other family members.  Again, it’s my choice to write, not theirs.  I must be respectful of those things that have been asked.  I could tell you more……but….I will stop there.  Are there things that you will not share out here in the online world????….feel free to share them as well.

I am a diabetes dad.

“That high blood sugar causes frequent urination AND fatigue. Sometimes the fatigue wins. I don’t share this because it would be embarrassing for my child that lives with it.”—sent to me by a mom.
Someone posted this but wanted it (I believe) to be anonymous. It is sound advice—so I am sharing it.
