A little over a year ago, our local JDRF chapter started a coffee group for us D-moms. There has been a core group of about 4 of us who consistently meet each month and a few that come every once in a while. I love this time with these other ladies because they get it. They know what it means when I say "he went from 250 to 50 in half an hour." They know the long nights, the worries, the frustrations. We learn from each other, support each other, and listen to each other. We all get it...no matter if our child is a toddler or a pre-teen, boy or girl, newly diagnosed or a veteran, on a pump or mdi. We meet once a month and try to cram all our questions and D stories into a couple hours over a cup of coffee.

Today was our first coffee group after taking the summer off. We had a great turn out-I think 8 Dmoms. I only wish there was enough time to get to talk to everyone and meet the new gals. I hope they continue to come and be a part of our group.

I hope too, that they find you guys, the DOC. I love to hear (or read) your stories. There are so many posts that seem as if they are taken straight from my head/heart and put out there by others. You make me laugh, you make me cry, but most of all, you make me feel not so alone on this crazy journey. Thank you to all the other Dmoms who get it!!



    It's like a secret pack or something ;)

    We should make up a handshake.

  2. It's awesome when you're surrounded by others who just "get it," isn't it?!

  3. I HEART YOU!!! I love that you guys all "get" me. xoxo

  4. I also have a little "group" that meets once a month or so. There are only three of us and time flies as we chat it up about our children and diabetes. Them, along with you and the DOC make my life better. Hooray for D Mama's who get it!!

  5. Hooray for Dmoms!!! Glad you have a group close to you. Connections are what make this ride worth the journey some days.
