When our son was diagnosed, his emergency room physician said it best:
“I am sorry that you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes. But you have a choice. Own your diabetes and you can control it. Ignore it and it will control you. You can live a productive life or really struggle. It is your choice.”
So there it is. Owning our diabetes gets us ready to embrace a journey full of new people, places, and things that can make the most of living life … with the Big D.
