I have never written her diagnosis story and planned on doing that for my post today. However, I have once again changed my tune :) If you have been reading Life is Like a Box of Chocolates this week, you know that I have been hosting some guest bloggers - and they are speaking from experience, as they are PWD (people with diabetes). As a D-Mama, I am gaining so much insight from these Type 1 bloggers and I am so grateful for their perspectives.
The first guest post was "Diabetes Doesn't Define You" by Sarah at I Don't Have Diabetes I've Got "Tha Suga". Then Haley from Naturally Sweet wrote a sweet letter to Ally in "Every Day is a New Day for You to Shine". Well, today I have another treat for you!
The guest blogger today does not blog about diabetes; she just lives with it.
My Sweet Allison has something to share. She wanted to write a letter back to Haley. The funny thing is that when we read the letter from Haley at the beginning of the week, she wanted to respond right away. Then she asked me if I could hold onto it and make sure that we sent it to her on Thursday, February 10. So here it goes...
Thank you for your letter. I’ve had Diabetes for 2 years. Today is February 10th the day I was diagnosed with Diabetes. And guess what? Today is the 100th day of school too!
I think you are very nice because you said nice things to me. Your letter made me happy. You really made me want to go to diabetes camp. If I get to go to diabetes camp, I will write to you and tell you all about it.
And she has some things to say to Sarah too...stay tuned!
