Week 28

Last night’s chat was GREAT! In order to understand the concept of the chat you have to read the transcript to fill in the blanks.  If you do not have diabetes, it will help you see the impact that this disease has on our lives and thoughts and the impact that it has on Parents of children with diabetes and significant others. If you are reading this and have diabetes-know that you are not alone.

Diabetes: Fill-in-the blank opened up my eyes and heart. I have diabetes but blessed with so much more.  If you weren’t able to participate last night, please feel free to leave a comment. If you participated in the chat last night, did you enjoy the format and would you be open to having another fill-in-the-blank chat?
