Ep. 5 - Adjustment After Being Diagnosed with Type 1 (Part 2)
Play • 23 min
Diabetes is something that has hit the African-American community hard but even harder with our toddlers. We are finding that more and more toddlers are being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, faster than we can find additional diabetic knowledge and supplies to support them.
In this week’s episode, I will be joined with my 6-year-old daughter Ce’Onna Meilani who is a Type 1 Diabetic and was diagnosed at just 3 years old. In light of it being Valentines Day we will be working together coloring some valentine’s day items for our bonding time while also discussing what she remembers about being diagnosed and how she feels she is adjusted; she will also share her tips for other little kids on what they should do or how they should handle their diagnosis during the painful times she has experience while dealing with her own diagnosis.
This two-part series is going to really open your eyes to what a toddler goes through as it comes straight from a toddler going through the pain on a daily basis. ​
