Hey Wiped out,
Just wanted to say welcome and hope everything is going well.
Feel free to get in touch if you need any help I`ve been diabetic since the age of 2years old so have lived through most and have looking to life through a lot more as well as help as many ppl that I can.
Your not alone we are all here for you.
hi Theresa, just stopping by to give a friendly hug. It's hard enough just being 14, let alone having the d. We have some real nice teens here, and a lot of friendly girls. Our admin team keeps everything safe for those 13 and up. I'll send you the links to the teen groups, and maybe you can check them out.
See if you can get him interested in coming here. It's a great site for teens and there's even a group for teens with Type 1, maybe that will help both you and him! I took Type 1 at 10 and my daughter took Type 1 at 11, so I knida know where both you and he are at! NO YOUR NOT IN THIS ALONE AND NIETHER IS HE!!! But I know sometimes it feels like it! Here you will find there are alot of us who went through what both of you are going through! He jist wants to be like his other friends who don't have to do this, watch his food intake and count his carbs check his bg and all that being a diabetic entails. Teens are a really hard time even without diabetes this just seems to make it harder. Oh and my daughter who took TYpe 1 at 11? Well she's 21 now and the mother to 3 children 3 1/2 . 18 months and 5 weeks! No I won't say she's doing right but I will say that she is where she at thanks to me and alot of help from different DRs. It just seems to take alot. But the way I look at it for both me and her is all we have to do is check our bs (which she does about every 3 weeks if that) and take our insulin. My mom told me and I told her it could always be worse, you could have been born without so much just thank God that's all you've got. She was also born without a left hand. So things will work out and one day he will have children he wants to see grown and graduate and going somewhere in their life, Right now though it's just REALLY wanting to be like his friends (or that's what it was for me and my daughter)
