Real life over here... Just like there are good days, there’s also a lot of really crappy ones too. A six year old with headaches, just shouldn’t be a thing. Diabetes sucks & there is no cure. Help spread awareness, not just because it’s NATIONAL DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH. But because these humans deserve to live a normal, happy, healthy life. #levistrong 💙

Words from Levi’s daddy:
Not many things make me cry as a man and as a father. Well with the exception of my daughter (daddy's little girl). I also have 2 handsome sons and should be happy. But I cry every day. My happy 7 yr old son has recently been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I tell myself to never repeat that he is an addict because he needs a drug to survive. A drug the government and its godly drug companies make unaffordable so they can profit from our desperation. Instead I remind myself he is addicted to living a long healthy fun life and if nothing else, he needs my help.This disease has no cure yet... Let's help find one.
It’s WORLD DIABETES DAY!! Today, we are thankful for Frederick Banting. He invented insulin in 1922 that changed the world for all diabetics. Happy Birthday Doc #levistrong 💙

In these moments, he’s just my sweet baby boy. You see the joy and happiness radiating from his precious smile, and those eyes. If you could feel the way my heart feels, when I look at him.... and then sit here in our reality. You’d feel it pounding so hard, from my love for him & for my fear and hate for Diabetes. Feeling hopeless, frustrated, tired, scared, alone, and worried. My life is spent keeping this smile on his face, putting medicine in his body to keep him alive, having patience during his highs & lows. Loving him so much knowing that if I fuck up one time, just a little bit... His life depends on me & that’s a heavy fucking load. But I look at that face & melt EVERY. DAMN. DAY. And then I realize how thankful I am, that I can be strong enough and lucky enough to be his mom and take care of him.
He is my superhero #levistrong 💙

Field trip day with Levi and his best bud Erich!! Because of diabetes, an LPN or parents are required to escort Levi on school outings. Looks like we’ll be professional chaperones by the time this kid graduates!! 💙 #levistrong .
