Well here it is, the very first weekly post for “The Fearless Diabetic” website. I have titled this post “Starting Slowly” because sometimes we just need to slow down. If you have been newly diagnosed or know someone who has, you might feel that the world is spinning around you and you are at a stand still wondering how to process this new challenge in your life. Where do you begin? For so many people it can be frightening, overwhelming and confusing. For parents, friends families they are at loss for how to act, what to say, and what to do. This new challenge impacts everyone in different ways. Of course it impacts the person with diabetes the most.
