Ever since my son's diagnosis with diabetes, the Easter holiday has been a tough one for me. It's not so much the holiday itself, but it's the preparation that gets me - specifically shopping for the goodies that go in the Easter baskets. I know the tricks (which are akin to surviving most holidays laden with treats , like Halloween or Christmas) where I should buy small presents instead of candy or focus more on the family or friend get-togethers than the goodies. But I still cling to tradition and want to put some sweets into the baskets. So, there I found myself, standing in the eight-foot tall seasonal candy aisles at my local Target, surrounded by thousands of solid chocolate bunnies, gooey Cadbury eggs, a rainbow riot of all types of Peeps, jellybeans, robins eggs, pastel M&Ms and orange Reese's pieces in carrot shaped bags.

Asthma Weaknesses: Even though they have few symptoms, they still have asthma and still need to take their medicine as directed.
