Here’s a video I did to give a quick four minute picture of Ryan and how he lives with Type 1 Diabetes. Watch and fall in love with the boy!!
Embracing Life & the Child with the Disease
This is Amy
And Who Is Amy?
I'm happily married to the love of my life and we just celebrated our 14th anniversary. I'm a stay-at-home momma to three beautiful boys, the middle of which was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2009 . . . which also makes me a full-time pancreas. I love Jesus. My passion is family and friends. My release is writing. I'm honest and real about our journey with Type 1 but try very hard to stay on the positive side of life (although not always successful), not for myself, but for my boys (all four of them). Come and read . . . follow . . . COMMENT . . . and be a part of the journey with us . . . d and non-d alike. Let's walk this road of LIFE together.
Sometimes Type 1 diabetes can be overwhelming. There are stretches of bad days and sometimes even bad weeks. And I blog about the good and the bad. But all too often, the bad is too easy to blog about and I get swallowed up in the 24/7 nature of the disease. So I decided in early May that I was going to focus one blog post a week on ONE single thing that I am thankful for, not matter how trivial or huge it may be, on Thursday, I'm choosing to find something in my life to be thankful for because of diabetes and sometimes in spite of it! The little irony I find in it all is that Ryan was diagnosed on a THURSDAY. So, join in as often as you like. Post your thankful on your facebook status, tweet your thankful in 140 characters or post about your thankful on your blog. Be sure to let me know when you do; I'd love to read your thankful too!
