If you are a parent of a child who has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, you know how life-altering those 3 words truly are. Hearing “your child has diabetes” is frightening, especially since public knowledge is lacking about this type of diabetes. Once you learn what exactly it entails, and how much time and energy will need to be dedicated to it, by both you and your child, you may feel a whole host of emotions. As parents, we would do anything to keep our child out of harm’s way, so it’s difficult not to feel like it’s your fault but you could not have stopped it from happening.
