My daughter was diagnosed at age 6 and was put on insulin and oral meds, she's now 13 years old and the battle for a
pump started in 2005 and still they refuse to put her on it. We reached one mile stone she got approved fro the CGM
today, but still no pump. Wow what has to happen for this to be done. Shes tired of shots and constant pricking, her
fingers hurt all the time and have black dots on them. Can't the doctors realize the pain our children feel. Life has to get better, I hope. This has been a roller coaster for us with constant highs and lows it's hard to know exact levels. She checks 6 times a day and takes 4 shots a day. The freedom is not there every where we go we have to take vials and insulin and her meter. Even when we go out to eat, she get embarrassed when she has to check her glucose before she eats and take insulin in public, she hates it. I'm praying for a cure soon it would be so well for all our children with this terrible disease. God bless every one.
