You've never felt more alone, yet you've never needed more support. A child's diabetes diagnosis can be an isolating experience for a parent or caregiver. Friends and neighbors who think they understand what you're going through are at times kind but misguided. Relatives sometimes back away from the hands-on support you really need. The rest of the world seems to buzz on around you, yet you can feel completely disconnected. Support from someone who truly understands can be the life vest you need, not just in the first weeks, but throughout your entire experience of raising a child with diabetes.
