That is the point of CWD's Friend For Life. Living with disbetes takes energy from a family. That energy needs to be charges and oriented from time to time.
Being a guy I have a facination for machines. Machines don't make for better health care, better caring makes for better health care.
FFL gives me a reorientation. Gets my focus on raising kids who happen to have type 1 diabetes. It helps me get my mind off the numbers and means of care and onto the caring.
YDMV started at FFLas a way for me to both have and share that focus on the kids. Funny (a word that here means sterotypicaly not humorous) being a guy I've let my focus drift.
I find it very ironic that the Monty Python bit about machine based health care is "The Machine That Goes Ping." I need to be about the kids not the stuff. Or at least more of a balance.
I'll try. If you're smart, expect posts about The Machines That Go Ping (or are named Ping) anyway.
And maybe some focus where it should me too.
