U know that they will be right after awhile?? When I became a Type 1 back in the 70's it was "count ur calories" Then I think it was in the 80's they came out with "count ur carbs" That was a learning curv for me. I still count the calories then the carbs in my foods. I became a Type 1 at 10 and am now 48. Oh honey just give urselves time and don't try to learn things TOO fast and u guys will be fine. Diabetes care has changed so much since 73 that when my daughter became a Type 1 in 99 I honestly had to learn the care all over again. Her dr told me that I was still working off the past and how it was cared for but I had to step up to the present day. And here I thought I knew it all then. After I found TuD I kept learning and u will too!

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
