I'm not sure if I am in a unique situation or not but back ground is I have been involved in a divorce for 6 years now. My son was diagnoised 4 years ago, and his father keeps pushing and having fits when it comes down to visitation. I have sole custody and we went with the pump for therapy a few months ago. Well dad is back from another tour of duty and upset at what the endo has recomended ( endo wants diabetes self care management classes for anyone who take care of our son no mater how beriefly, and 50 hours of pump training) He has done none but read mostly about type 2 and these bogus scam "cures" for type 1. I do not feel confident that my son will be ok with dad, nor is it fair.safe to ask an 8 year old to care for himself for 10 hours. My attorney suggests just telling him no until he gets trained, but I don't think they understand his sociopathic mentality. Has anyone else had problems with this? how have you coped? Please feel free to add to this discussion.
