help for 10 year old w/ t1d with PTSD

My step-daughter has had a rough road with her diabetes. When she was 8 mo old she was originally diagnosed with epilepsy and given pills for it. At 2 with the seizures continuing, she was finally diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. When she was 4 my husband and her mom were divorced. She lived with her mother during the week and with my husband on the weekends. In 2011 we had noticed a very bad pattern with her blood sugar tests. We filed for custody and won. Since then my step-daughter's a1c has…See More

I am a mother of 4 and step parent of 2. My husband and I were granted full custody of his 2 children in 2011, due to medical neglect to his daughter with her diabetes. Unfortunately, she was taught how to mistreat her diabetes (not enough insulin, too much, give self bruises for attention). Within 9 months of her moving in with us we thought we had her understanding her diabetes better and her BGL were well enough that she was recommened for a pump! YAY! A year later, she's still mistreating her diabetes and I'm on here hoping to get advice on how to deal with these actions.
