I openly stated on here that I voted Trump in 2016.
I am not a supporter of any politician. I think they all are trash.
2020.....it's like choosing between puke and butter.

I'm not a supporter of any politician, I think they all are garbage, but I did vote for Trump in 2016 and I do think that he will win this election.
There is a huge amount of enthusiasm out there. Have you seen the boat rallies? I don't see that kind of support for Biden. People are voting for him simply because he's "not Trump "
There is no platform and nothing to get excited about. 4 years of trying to get rid of Trump and this is who they put up as his opponent? Definitely not bringing their A game!
I'm convinced Pelosi and friends don't really want Trump out. He is their scapegoat. If he's gone, the focus turns to them and what they haven't done.
tbf.. I'm not dumb enough to put my boat on the water with a crap ton of other boats. That's dangerous.
And what do you mean, there is no platform? Are you referring to the Democrat or Republican party?click to expand

My husband is Type 1 Diabetic. He was diagnosed just about the time your son did too, 3 years ago. DKA is no joke, and I sometimes wonder if better education about diet, or even helping those that have it, have access to insurance to help cover how costly all the medication is. It's just so expensive for those that do not have insurance to help cover the costs. And even with Obama Care, the co-pay can still be ridiculous.
Just my thoughts.

Make it feel like they're at an aunt or uncle's home, etc. Keep the atmosphere cozy, fun, informative, exploratory, etc. It doesn't need to be formal or too structured, I think that would hinder some and make their mental hangups worse.

Ask local construction foremen if they can promise to take on one person a quarter or half a year to give an opportunity to and then a path to a job if it works out perhaps, etc.
That's a good idea!
Diabetes killed my son. He was diagnosed at 16 and struggled with depression shortly after. I couldn't save him. I tried. I can't have a redo but maybe I can help someone
My father was diabetic and struggled with depression too. He drank and smoked heavily also. His physical illness compunded his mental health as he was also unable to work near the end. My mother did all she could to take care of him. His condition deteriorated rapidly once he was diagnosed with diabetes, as his mother, my grandma had it and she died relatively young. Something in his mind went south where he decided to give up. On himself, on his family, on life.
I have a cousin who was your son's age when he passed away. One night instead of going home after playing football he decided to journey to London Bridge and jump. He went missing officially until they recovered his body months later. He was depressed and under a lot of stress during that time. It all became too much. He could not see a way out, same as my dad.
Your son's situation isn't the same as them but I can empathise with the helplessness that comes with seeing a loved one suffer. And what you must remember as a Mother you did all you could with the very best intentions, with what you were given at the time. You can't do anymore than that. Nobody can see into the future, nobody can control the future. What's important is the love you were able to share with and give your son, this is what will remain. In this life and after. Remember these moments and take them with you.
Thank you for these words. One thing that I'm struggling with is blaming myself. I went about it the wrong way.
Hindsight is always 20-20, right?
I will say that time heals. The grief never leaves completely but you learn to live with it. You learn to make peace with it. This is what I wish for you
