3 blogs to get on board with
From blogs written by type 1 tykes themselves, to those penned by parents of children who are living with diabetes, add these three to your reading list:
• OUR DIABETIC LIFE (ourdiabeticlife.com): Meri Schuhmacher is mum to four boys, three of whom have type 1 diabetes. Through her blog, Meri candidly shares her family’s experiences, their triumphs and their challenges.
• CHILDREN’S DIABETES FOUNDATION (childrensdiabetesfoundation.org/category/blog/): Produced by a foundation dedicated to diabetes research, blog posts include a 10-year-old’s account of being diagnosed with type 1 and a mum’s take on her daughter’s involvement in research studies.
• ADVENTURES IN DIABETES PARENTING (adventuresindiabetesparenting.blogspot.com.au): Written by Pam Osborne, this blog provides an insight into her family’s life with type 1 diabetes, after her now-teenage daughter was diagnosed shortly after celebrating her first birthday.
