Diabetes Blog Week – Letter Writing Day
Dear Little Bea,
You have a personal hero, your dad. He’s your whole world and the person you look up to the most. He loves you dearly, you are his princess. He will be there for you every step of the way and you can rest assured he will never disappoint you. You have a treasure… you better appreciate him! Because one day Diabetes will take him away from you, and your heart will be forever broken, but his death will be your motivation to create awareness about this condition and be passionate about it. And you will be somehow thankful that you got to learn about it since you were a little kid, because when the time comes for you to face it, you will know much more than you think.
No, I don’t want to scare you. I just want to give you a little heads up. Diabetes is quite complicated, but it has been a blessing in disguise for us. We have gotten to meet wonderful people and to learn many things. The best part is that we’re not alone and life has been fun despite its many challenges. We’re happily married to the most amazing man in the world (I know you’re a romantic!) and he understands what this Diabetes thing is about. He will drive you crazy at times, but you’ll love him even more for that.
There are many challenges ahead, but your life will be great. You’re a smart, compassionate, sweet person. You will feel like beating yourself up at times, but don’t get discouraged. Give credit to yourself for your efforts and don’t forget you’re human. Diabetes won’t defeat you.
