Diabetes Blog Week... Day 3

My biggest supporters...

Wowza... where do I begin?

Anthony( the hubbs)~ I have always been strong (emotionally). Something knocks me down... I stand up... brush off and move on. That's just what I've learned to do. But when Justin was diagnosed... I LOST IT.


I was a mess. I don't even know if the word mess is enough to describe my shattered being. I would literally look at Justin and cry... for months.

But there he was... standing strong and assuring me that it would be okay. And he continued to do so even when I would yell back that IT WOULD NOT!

I don't think I thanked him for that... I don't think I tell him that I am grateful for his strength when mine escaped me... I don't think I have thanked him for propping me up until the numbness left my body and I could stand on my own again.

Thank you pumpkin... I would be a crazy mess without you.

C (our school nurse). This is the best school nurse E.V.E.R!!!! Really, no one could ever convince me otherwise. She handles everything this spaz of a mom throws at her and then some. I trust her judgement. She is the reason I don't worry about him while he is at school. My life would be so much harder without her.

Thank you C... for making my life a little less stressed.
Ah! Now to the ladies who brushed me off (my friends). To the ONLY positive part of this journey.

Thank you for your encouragement... your support... your tears... your friendship.
Thank you for helping me see that I am not alone. Alone in my fears... my struggles... my dark circles ;)
Thank you for your understanding.
Thank you for lifting me up.
Thank you for accepting me into your world with open arms.
You have given me the courage to look forward... and HOPE.
I love you all
DNQ... of course!

Beautiful post Laura.

The understanding that we get from this awesome group of D-moms/dads is amazing! It's nice to know that we are not alone in this.

I echo everything everyone has said... I don't know how I would do this without you guys!

Wendy said...

Hugs to you from AZ!

Unknown said... that you call your hubby "pumpkin" - I call mine that too - smiles.

I LOVE YOU and am sooo very grateful for you too...sniff...sniff...all these "feel good" posts are getting to the softer side of me...and I am losing my 'truck driver' language for a night - lol.
