I feel so helpless. My son recently had his immunizations updated for school. Now they want a Lead panel included.
At 5, I can't explain to him properly, yes I have to poke you 3x's a day. Yes, you still have to get your normal 3 month blood panel for your Endo. Oh and YES, now we need you too give us more blood for you school! This has been the worst 1 month period since his diagnosis.
It's needle overload! Every time he needs a non-insulin needle we basically have to chase him down, sit on him & hope we can keep him still enough that it doesn't break off in him! I feel so sorry for him. I've actually taken a new needle & stuck myself so I can use the "see, Mommies getting one too"line. Ok, ouch, I can't do that anymore!!! He's finally give in to the dailies. We've been advised against the pump & I agree for now for him.
I don't know, I don't even know if I'm asking for advice, I think I'm just venting!
