Everything’s Fine!

by Leighann on March 18, 2010

Life is perfect, never better.

I’m losing my mind, everything’s fine!

There was a moment maybe a year after my daughter’s diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes that I was driving in my car alone and this song came on the radio. I cranked it up and screamed EVERYTHING’S FINE in a cathartic release, tears warming my cheeks.

I quite honestly don’t know how us D-Moms and Dads can keep ourselves so composed most of the time.

I am sure I speak for all of us when I say that it is always in the back of our minds. Always.

I may look like I have it all together. I may look like I cope well. I may look like I can handle what diabetes throws at us.

I may look like everything’s fine.

You hit the nail on the head. It’s so nice to read this and know that there is someone going through the same exact emotions as I am.

oh man..this is great! I’m having an “off” week as this time last year, Emily was diagnosed with T1. So this song is my anthem today! 🙂

Perfectly said… I don’t know how we keep it together either. It’s been one of those days that I just want to climb on the roof of my house and scream, “eeeeeeeverythiiiiing suuuuuuuuuucks!”

Thank goodness that tomorrow is another day.
