“Meri is mom to 4 boys, 3 who have Type 1 Diabetes. Muddling her way through with humor and hope, she wishes every family to know they are not alone.”
My husband and I have four boys, three who have Type 1 Diabetes. Our 13 year old son was diagnosed at 8 months old. Our 9 year old son was diagnosed at 5 years old, and our 7 year old son was diagnosed at 2 years old. I began my blog, Our Diabetic Life, about two years ago. It was my field of dreams…I truly believed if I could build it, they would come. Since then I have met hundreds of Mothers just like me, and many adults with Diabetes who inspire me every day. The DOC has brought me joy beyond measure. The power of “same” is an amazing thing. Knowing our family is not alone in this battle has changed our life for the better. I hate to think of the families that battle alone. We are an army that is stronger together.
