Many assume that diabetes is just a minor physical inconvenience that people deal with, like having a limp or living without an appendix (because what the heck is it there for anyway?).
But a chilling late-night encounter shared by Dorrie Nuttall is opening everyone’s eyes to just how dangerous this disease can be. Read her powerful viral Facebook post below that ends with a heroic twist and an important awareness message for all:
This may just look like a dog, a sleeping boy and a number on a screen, but this, this moment right here is so much more. This is a picture of Jedi saving his boy. Saving him from highs and lows and from ever feeling alone.
5 minutes before I took this picture we were all asleep. No alarms were going off, no one was checking blood, no one was thinking about diabetes, and it’s in those moments when our guards are down, when we are just living life, when we let our minds drift from diabetes, that it has the upper hand-and things can get scary very fast…but thankfully we have a Jedi.
