    Hi everyone, I know this is an old post, but it’s obviously stayed so relevant for this long.
    I just loved it. It does seem to be a bit of a void - this huge impact on the life of parents.
    I have to confess, I’m sneaking into the parents forum as an auntie only. My precious baby niece was diagnosed coming up 3 weeks ago, shy of her 2nd birthday.
    I’ve friends with T1, another with a young grandchild diagnosed 18mths ago, so already knew the impact it would have on their lives, but it’s still difficult to watch this ‘new normal’ develop.
    Anyway, I’m here to glean whatever insight I can to support my sister & her family.
    Thanks so much everyone for your shares. Xx
