Frank Lessons

So, this past week has been spent learning everything I didn't know about diabetes. Trivial things, that mainly moms would care about, but lessons nonetheless.

  • When you have a newly-diagnosed child with diabetes, you won't sit down for an entire week straight. Don't expect this schedule to lighten, ever.*
  • Be glad you worked so hard to make all your women friends, you'll need each and every one of them.
  • Sugar-free candy does not necessarily mean carb-free. Oops.
  • The shots hurt when the needle goes in, but not when it comes out.
  • Expect to fall in love with list making, it's your new hobby.
  • You'll quickly discover every one of your children has been ingesting way too much sugar.

* When you realize diabetes is turning you into the mom you should've been all along, be grateful.
