Something that we've found invaluable in treating diabetes daily is the huge amount of advice, war stories and support that we've gotten from others who also deal with this terrible disease. But how do we connect in the first place? The ironic thing is that by volunteering our help, advice and insight to others has come back ten-twenty-hundred fold.
Our involvement with JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation), Diabetes Angels and one to one outreach with newly diagnosed families in our community has created a network of knowledge and support for us.
So my advice to you out there- help others and it will strengthen your own daily fight with diabetes. And to all of you out there in our network that have helped my family over the years - thanks.
