A Sweet Life: Surviving the Diagnosis

A few weeks ago Jessica Apple the founder and editor-in-chief of A Sweet Life emailed me to tell me that she read our families story on my blog. (Me - Whaaaaat?  Really?  You read my blog?)

She also asked if I would be interested in writing a post about Nate's T1D diagnosis. Would I be interested ---- Ummm Yes! How many articles have I read and how many recipes have I made from A Sweet Life - - - A LOT!! I love the magazine style of the site and always find the articles informative and interesting. So, yes - I was thrilled!

As it turns out writing for someone else is much harder than I thought it would be. I really struggled finding the words and making them all come together.  I found that so strange since I am never at a loss for words over here at HWHAP.  It took a while but I was finally able to get something over to Jessica and guess what . . . it's the featured article today on A Sweet Life

If interested, please head over to A Sweet Life, read 'Surviving the Diagnosis' by yours truly, check out the recipes, featured bloggers and many, many informative articles. Jessica and her husband, Mike both have T1D and are truly inspiring.

AWWW...great post Laura and it touched home. Sometimes I cannot even believe I, we made it through those first months and the first year. It was such a hard place to "be".

Great post. I was tearing up because it reminded me so much of my little girl.

What a great article. Though, I will tell you it was hard to read. We Re coming up on the one year anniversary for Joshua's dx, and all of those memories come back. It was a horrible week in the hospital, and it has been a hard year, but at least we still have him. I am thankful for that everyday! Great article.

Very nice job, Laura!!!! Weeeeeeeeee! What fun to be published elsewhere.

And, love the new look for your space, here. The photo of the kiddos is so sweet.

Sarah said...

Bravo...and again cried, every time I hear the dx stories of our kiddos it makes me cry. I can't wait for the day when dx stories stop, no more d.
