You're stronger than you think! Deep breath and one day at a time is all you can do!

I don't always cope as its hard work.....some days I sit and imagine how awesome my household would be without diabetes. It does get a bit easier as my boys are getting older. Any diabetic camps available in your area, I sent two of my kids on them and they loved it and it gave me a few days break. When my son who is now 21 was diagnosed at 2, I was lucky to have a play group to attend with other mums of t1ds, it was so good to hear that I was not alone. How old are your children? Sending big hugs to you! x

First child diagnosed was 9 he just turned 19. 2nd child diagnosed at 8 and she is 11 now. Last one was just diagnosed 2 days after her 17th birthday in December. The two girls are the worst!!!! Hormones plus this plus add and learning disabled is just too much. I don't even know who I am what I like. Nothing

You are a wonderful mum who is doing the best she can!!!! Have you taken yourself to the doc, as I had a massive meltdown two years ago it all just got too much and I wasn't coping. I have been on anti-depressants since, am slowly weaning off them now, they were not a miracle cure but they helped me to feel a little bit in control.
