Dear Teacher: The DX

The DX: The Diabetes Experience asked me to write a letter to the teacher of a student who has type I diabetes. They editor didn't give me any more direction then, "We'd like a Dear Teacher' piece". Well, I wrote a letter in the tone of the real life conversations that I have with Arden's teachers and I posted a link to it this morning on Facebook and now I'm posting it here. 

I'm very touched by the warm responses you have been leaving on Facebook, you guys rock!

"I wish I could like this more than once!!" - "I loved it!" - "Great piece!"

If you get a chance, pop over to The DX and check it out.


In a perfect world, the parents of children living with type 1 diabetes wouldn’t have to leave their kids for a third of every day with people who don’t understand the intricacies of diabetes the way that we do. I guess, though, that if the world were perfect, we wouldn’t be talking about this at all. <read the rest on The DX>


Disclosure. I was compensated for my writing on The DX (A blog from Sanofi Diabetes) but I was not asked to change or have any opinions regarding Sanofi or their products, of which Apidra (Arden's insulin) is one. Trust me, if that Apidra goes haywire... I'll be the first one to speak up.
