I do miss the times that people respectfully held their tongue. I miss the free flow of information. but it is a 2 way street that has to be minded, both ways. In this digital age it is super hard to do so. We are brought here with the common thread of T1D, yet we have stay at home moms/dads with PHd's and those that for what ever reason didn't make it thru schooling. Those that want to be there but can not and have to entrust the care of their child into possible less capable hands. Those that are able to leave their children in more capable hands that can learn and know the child better than the family they return home to. I myself came here with not much more than my high school diploma, I continued my studies and actually entered Nursing school. But I missed the life I got away from, and I choose life and to forgo my further education to be with my family and children. I have the grasp of a lot of "ideas" but lack the breadth and depth of many things. But, I still feel that I can rattle a few extra thoughts out of people. Even if I am wrong in my idea, it might solidify another in theirs? I have learned over the last 10 years so so much, so much from CWD. I hope to continue to be back and posting with little tid bits like I used to when I learned so much.
