What about your child or spouse who does not have diabetes? (And for those who are old enough, what about mom and/or dad.)
When is the last time you said to them, “Hey you are pretty special and thank you for being there in this household where diabetes demands so much”. When is the last time you did that?
We do not need to make it ‘ANOTHER’ special day for diabetes ‘whatever’. We have enough and they are all good things. But why not take a moment to just say, “Hey thanks, I know you got my back.”
Think about everything they put up with, in your household. No one signed up for this, goodness knows who ever would? But there is something to be said for the person who does not have the 24/7/365 management but are right alongside of it all; they are pained, they know, they help, and they would love for diabetes to be gone as well.
Let them know how much they are appreciated and if you do say thanks, let us know how you do?
