Talking type 1 diabetes with Friends - the video!

In life there are "friends", and then there are friends. The latter (or friends) are the people in your life that try to get it. That want to understand. They may say something that makes you crazy from time to time, but you don't care, because you know they love you and are doing their best to understand what diabetes has done to your life.

The former are the people, that when your child was diagnosed, were nowhere to be found. The only time they are interested is when they run into you by chance; and even then it seems they just talk to hear the sound of their own voice. They speak in stereotypes and say things that are absolutely maddening.

This video is dedicated to those "friends" in all of our lives.

  4. LOVE it!!! I have a few "friends" like that...I'm pretty sure "the stupids" made its way around here and infected these people shortly after Charlotte's diagnosis :) I especially love hearing about people's animals with diabetes...I'm a pet-lover and all, but as my little one would say "come on, really"!!!
