#5 - Invisible Diabetes #NHBPM
I was going to go with the prompt today but it's actually 11:45 PM on Friday night and I'm tired. I got through 1/2 of my post and changed my mind when I saw this picture on my phone . . .
Diabetes is often called an invisible disease which I understand because when Nate looks like this . . .
all you see is a precious little 3-year old boy. Most people would never know that he has diabetes or anything else for that matter. This is the little boy that I want you to see but please don't forget the little boy that I see at home has 2 life saving medical devices attached to him at all times. His insulin pump infuses a life-saving and potentially fatal man-made insulin through his little body. If his pump malfunctions it quickly becomes a life or death situation.
Diabetes Awareness Month means a lot to me because Diabetes is NOT invisible to me.
