Anger Behind Me

Anger and fear are behind me. My heart is heavy and grieving, for a child I never knew. For her entire family. Dear sweet Eilish died her sleep this week. She was just 13 years old. Eilish was diagnosed with T1 Diabetes at the age of 3. Eilish's parents managed her Diabetes with constant diligence, 24/7 for over 10 years. Yet, she still passed away in her sleep. They call it DEAD IN BED SYNDROME . Whatever you call it, whatever happened that tragic night, the truth is Diabetes can kill. Without notice. Without reason. Tragic. Unspeakable. Every parents worst nightmare.

Im still at a loss for words. But as always, Amy's Blog says it all....

DIABETES: The Possibilities

In honor of Eilish and all the children, adults and family members that live with Diabetes. BLUE. Spread the word. Educate. Be heard. Stand strong.

YEP...I agree with whole-heartedly. I will continue blogging, educating, and advocating. It is all I have, so I will do all I can with it.

Someday, hopefully, this reality will be a distant memory.
