My son was diagnosed in July of this year. He has done amazingly well with monitoring his blood sugar; taking his shots; everything. As a family we have done well also. But there are some days as a Mom that I just want to cry my heart out for my little boy (he's 10). The questions of why did this have to happen to him. Of course, medically we have all the answers the doctors do, but sometimes I search for something deeper. I try hard not to feel sorry for him or myself but today is just not a good day. I never let on to him. I always tell him how proud of him I am.
When he was diagnosed, we of course had no idea. He was sick, took him in, and next thing we knew he was airlifted to a hospital in the city (we live in a very rural area) for better care. I guess the shock of it all and how serious it was makes it hard to deal with as well.
Just needed to vent and see how other parents deal with bad days like today.
