"Thanks but I don't feel that (for us) ignoring it is the right thing. She has been talking about it often. I don't want it to be this huge elephant in the room. If that makes sense. And as much as last year's memory hurts it was also…"

"I love this idea! Thank you!! We didn't want to just ignore it since she is the one that brings it up. We definitely tell her how proud we are of her in all aspects of her life...from her red belt in martial arts to her grades in school to…"

"I am just learning, too. Our school nurse suggested the builder bars when he was having frequent lows, and 1/2 a bar is 15 carbs. It is not to be used as a fast acting sugar, but as a snack that sustains. If he is below 80 he likes a juice box or…"

I see you are new here, this is such a great site for support and advice. Joining tu was crucial to my coping process with jacob's D, as others just do not understand all the layers of complexity of D physically and emotionally on us and our children. so it is nice to share with others who truly understand and even if we are miles away care. you are coming up on your daughters first year, i remember the date but we never celebrated a diaversery as some do, oh my it will be 4 years this week coming up see it all fades as time goes by, the worry is still there but with their knowledge and ability to self manage comes confidence that they can handle this with us backing them! how are you and your daughter really doing? best wishes, amy
