Leading From Love.
My 14 year old daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and for most people, they think i its no big deal, but it is one of the worst diseases out there. A Type 1 Diabetic can’t be without insulin 24/7 and needs it every 6 minutes. This diagnosis spun my daughter Kelli into a world of fear, hate, uncertainty and bitterness. She became depressed and anxious. That led to a doctor giving her Xanax, which then spiraled into an addiction 5 years later. She became an addict and lived every day as one.
I tried everything to help, to change it and protect her with all my might. Nothing worked, she became a girl I did not know and led a life I can not begin to describe as a mom. She almost died a dozen times but for some reason God said it wants time. I lived scared, sad and expecting the worst. I tried talking to her, getting her help but she spiraled downward.
I woke up one day and decided to live every aspect of my life from a place of love for everything and everyone. Each and every day the healing began for us. She went to therapy on her own, cried and thanked me for not giving up and has blossomed into a wonderful, grateful, loving soul. She has stopped the Xanax now for 1 year. And while I am not delusional as I know there are setbacks, I know with leading a life from love, we can fix anything that comes out way. My thoughts are all loving and I don’t try to control other people, just love. I know this sounds so cliche and unrealistic, but it has changed everything. I am blessed every day with the things that life does. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
