More than half of my clients with T1D (78%), did not initially come to me for help.
Their moms did.
This isn’t surprising.
When someone is drowning, it’s very hard for them to save themselves. They need someone (and who better than their mom?) standing on the boat with a clear mind to assess their needs, research solutions, and throw them a life raft. All they would need to do is decide they are ready for help and grab on.
Are you a mom of a late teen/adult with T1D? Is your child having a really hard time?
If you’re unsure if their struggle is because of Diabetes, a temporary rough patch, anxiety, and stress, or because of life in general, that’s ok.
Many moms tell me they can’t differentiate if their child is struggling because of T1D, or other general life factors.
I tell them that It doesn’t matter.
Having T1D can make everything feel harder for your child. I can help them shift their mindset so that living with T1D feels easier and life overall gets better. The only thing your child has to do is want to grab onto the life raft.
I want to take a moment to celebrate moms (and all parents) for ALL you do for your children — I should know. I’ve had T1D for 44 years and do NOT know where I’d be today without my mom! 💗
