I do not have diabetes. My brother was diagnosed with type 1 when he was 15, almost 10 years ago. When he was originally diagnosed I was too young and selfish to understand the kind of support he needs or to take the time to understand his illness. Now, I see him continue to struggle and have decided it is time all the people who love him help him take control of his illness. That is why my husband and I joined diabetic connect and are encouraging the rest of my family to do the same, but I find myself wondering, what else can I do to help my brother? What can I say? What will make this easier for him? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
