{Sunday Survey} Face to Face

by Leighann on June 26, 2011

Last week I asked:

How satisfied are you with your child’s most recent A1c?

Completely different topic this week…

There is another child at my daughter’s school who also has diabetes. It was great because they paved the way for us and even guided us through the 504 process. I often get to speak with the mom (and sometimes the dad) for a few minutes on the playground after school or in the parking lot after morning drop off. Sometimes our conversation is about diabetes, sometimes it isn’t. But it’s nice just to have someone who “gets it.”

We are sad that she will be in middle school next year and we will no longer have these regular interactions.

My question this week is:

How often do you get to talk face to face with another parent of a child with diabetes?

Face Time Survey

According to those who responded, a third of you see another d-parent once or more a month and another third once every few months. Is this enough interaction for you?

Have an idea for a Sunday Survey? Please let me know.

I answered once a year, but it’s actually twice a year. And that’s only when we get to go to Camp Kandu. We haven’t been able to go in the past year, so I suppose it’s now down to never.

We haven’t met any other type 1 families yet. We’re only 7 months into this and haven’t really had a chance to meet anyone else yet. We have connected with a family we plan to meet at our JDRF walk this fall.
