Well, I'm at a point that I feel like I'm going nuts. Never knew there was such a thing as type 1 until my son was diagnosed at 9.....apperantly we are a special family bc it's not anywhere on our families sides and my husband and I are negative for the gene.

Oh that's so hard. I have to just say hang tough because unfortunately it gets crazier when they hit 10 and up. The growth spurts hormones. It makes everything change. The blood sugars are always high and you feel like they will never go down and stress Ughhh it put my 18 year old in icu at 17 because of his grandpa passing away. He was almost comatose and on an insulin drip.

Have you ever notice rages somedays I feel like just crying because the school nurse screams at me saying I'm not doing something right!

Oklahoma City, OK
Yes!!! Those nurses have no idea sometimes what they are even talking about. I have been through them from elementary middle school and high school and the high school nurse just now took it upon herself to learn right when my sons graduating and I was like seriously. 4 years later you finally get it's not type 2!!!!! They let my kid walk out of the school when he was HI....no one could find him.
