Day 6: Relationship
Relationships are an important part of our daily lives. When living with a chronic illness like Type One Diabetes it is important to have a good friendship with someone who understands and “gets” what you go through. Kay made a friend with a younger boy who lives about 30 miles from us one night last year during a basketball game. She saw him across the court checking his blood sugar and had to go talk with him and get to know him. They have since become good T1 buddies. We walked together at the Walk to Cure Diabetes in 2013, they attended Diabetes Camp together this past summer as well. I’m glad she has a good relationship with someone who ‘gets it’!
