Parenting a Child With Diabetes: What You Need to Know Tagged with:

 

At first, the signs were nearly imperceptible. Your kid began drinking a lot more water and needed more potty breaks than ever before. Maybe she was constantly tired or experienced inexplicable signs of nausea. In any case, it was clear you needed to take her to a pediatrician.

The diagnosis? Type 1 diabetes mellitus. A disease that impairs your child’s body from producing insulin and introduces a world of new routines, concerns, and fears. It can feel like your child’s life is ending before it even really began.

If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, know that you and your child will work through this. While type 1 diabetes can lead to severe mental and financial burdens, there are ways you both can overcome.

Fighting for Inclusion: How Transportation and Healthcare Can Improve

Fighting for Inclusion: How Transportation and Healthcare Can Improve Tagged with:

 

Because we live in a capitalistic society, where marketers are always trying to target the largest common denominator, there will always be “norms.” We will always have groups seen as more “mainstream” and who society is largely built for because corporations know they can make money by centering the largest and/or most powerful group of people.

What’s Your Goal?

What’s Your Goal? Tagged with:

 

Think of a goal you would like to accomplish – is it that you would like to lose 5lbs? (or 50?) Would you like to lower your cholesterol by 30 points? How about complete a 10k?
