Diabetes In Photos

Below is a link to Teresa Ollila website. She is a mom with a son living with Type 1 Diabetes. She is a photographer and has captured images and the emotions of living with diabetes.

So many of her photos remind me of the difficulty of living with diabetes in my family and the everyday struggles we have. But it also reminded me that we do not let diabetes run our lives. I mean diabetes is a part of our everyday life but we do not focus on it. We have adapted it into our routine and of course we have to think about it constantly but then we move on.

Anyone who has contact with Grayson is effected by diabetes and know exactly what I mean.

Wow. Those are such powerful pictures. May a cure, or at the very least a less overwhelming treatment, be found soon. What a test this must be for those with diabetes and their devoted caretakers. My prayers and occasional donations go out to all of those affected.
