How I feel about diabetes
When I was little I didn’t really understand what diabetes was. In my opinion it was just a thing that all dads had. I had never had a dad without diabetes and I still can’t imagine what it would be like if dad didn’t have it. Sometimes it is funny when he goes low because he doesn’t seem to be aware of anything around him and always insists that he is not low. If he tells you that he is not low, that often means that he is. It is kind of scary because I don’t know if I would recognise the fact that he was low if I was at home with him alone, because it has never happened. If I did recognise that he was low, I don’t know if I would know what to do. It probably will happen at some point and I feel like I need to know more about diabetes to be able to deal with it if anything like that happened.
