A voice for living well with Type 1 Diabetes

Own it.

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.

Own it!
