It becomes, not easier, but it is just regular maintenance, like grushing your teeth. Sometimes I have inexplicable highs and lows, but I am fortunate not to have hypo unawatreness, nor major complications.. REmind your son of the MANY diabetics who are professional athletes, moms, dads, and can be anything that they want.!!!
What a wonderful mom you are to be so rightfully proud of your son!! I was diagnosed 41 years ago at the age of 13 and I know how difficult it can be to be a teen diabetic... God Bless You and your family!!!
im sorry to hear about your soon. i am 17 years old, and i was diagnosed about 6 months ago. your son is proabably feeling alot of stress right now. it is just plain out hard being a teen, worring about dances and homework and now blood sugars!!! its really hard. i have my " bad" days but my mom is always there for me to cry to. and im sure you are the same for your son. let me know if he wants to talk
We are struggling a little bit with Byron and his control. He is forgetting to bolus every day and so his bg's are all over the map. It is so frustrating. I just forgets. Even if reminded, he forgets. It reminds me of Miles a year ago so I think it is the "teen" thing...Other than that, just fine. Byron has a slow week next week so call if you want to get together.
I am sure you nervous as hell but he is in the best hands he could be. At a diabetic camp? Who could take care of him any better (besides mom of course). I really hope you take that time to relax and have some adult beverages. You deserve it!
