Riley (9) just saw a weight watchers commercial and she said "momma that commercial was for type 2 diabetes" I said "yes and that they can change their life styles and get better but you have type 1 and its a autoimmune thing not about how healthy you are". She asked what autoimmune means and I just said well its in the body (she understands more than that I just shortened it this time) and she said "oh does than mean I would just have to get robot pancreas?" me "lol yeah pretty much". I was talking to my husband about them last night. Of course she said no way are any robot parts going in me. Still funny and really cool how much she is learning and picking up about diabetes.
She makes it so much easier to accept and deal with both in me helping her deal with it and me dealing with all my fears for her in the future. She is going to be ok.
