So, not diabetes related. But related to peeps here on FUD.
I’m reading a book which I thought I might share here in case anyone might find it helpful. It’s written by a 13-year-old boy with autism and it’s fascinating. I know some folks here have family members/kiddos with autism, so I thought I would pass it along. I think the following line has made me want to share this book with everyone I know “True compassion is about not bruising the other person’s self-respect.”

It’s not completely about autism, but there’s a segment about a family with a son with non-verbal autism, and how they help him to communicate using a method similar to the author in the above book, and it’s stunning.
Here’s an article about the family in the film:
