I am tired of this disease.
I am tired of what it does to my daughter. I am tired of what it does to my son. I am tired of the extra pressure it puts on my parents. And I am tired of what it does to me.
I am tired of having to contact the school when kids are extra stupid (Sáin deals with most playground issues on her own but I step in when need be.) And I am tired of how the other parents then perceive me.
I am tired of being on the brink of financial ruin in order to keep my kid healthy and I am really tired of the US healthcare system. Who knew prevention was a 4 letter word?
I am tired of beeps, alarms, and wonky numbers. And I am tired of not being able to fix it.
I am tired of type 2s thinking they are the same as type 1s. And I am tired of parents who freak out when their kid sneezes or falls down thinking they know how I feel.
And as tired as I am of fighting for a cure, that cure is the only thing that will eliminate the other things I am tired of.
So, I will keep fighting.
