I am tough! I’m the mother of a child with Type 1 diabetes. Nothing else that can come my way will bring me down!
I am strong! I walk to my child’s room every day and wait to see the rise and fall of his chest! Fixing issues at work comes easy. There are solutions to all these problems!
I am in control! I drive home from work whilst simultaneously singing loudly to seventies disco music and calculating the carb value of the meal I’m about to prepare!
I am adaptable! Anticipating the impact every little thing my child does on his blood glucose levels and getting it wrong frequently, teaches me this skill!
Don’t mess with me! You stuff up your role in caring for my child when I have tried to help you, I will take you down!
