Woo Hoo first Guest Post - Cassie Giesberg.You may recall another of Cassie's guest posts on Sugar's the Bitch not me - if not go there now and check it out - I'll wait.
So here's the deal. I started this blog first to clear my head. Siphon my thoughts into a pensieve - as Dumbledore would say (see I Write Because from 4/4/12). It has helped me a great deal to share my thoughts, concerns, successes and stories. What has helped more is how I've become so connected in the Diabetes Online Community via Twitter. I have met (both in person and online) some of the most fabulous people in the DOC. In the last 5 years since SugarBoys diagnosis I have come to realize that people with diabetes and parents with diabetes really and truly are sweeter (yes it's a pun - but it is true.) One of those dfabulous people I have met is Cassie Giesberg, CDE (certified diabetes educator) extraordinaire. My children have had the fortunate luck to be seen by dear Cassie. I trust everything she says and so as a parent of 2 children with diabetes I asked her to write a guest post with advice to parents of children with diabetes. I am grateful she has provided so much valuable information that I can share with you.
