Hi to all! My name is Kelly and my daugther, Macie, who is 11 was diagnosed with Type one in Aug. We just started using insulin this past month and she is still in the honeymoon phase.
My concern is that tomorrow Macie is in the Saint Patrick's Day parade and is going to be taking a bus downtown with the rest of her group and marching. I am a nervous wreck. Macie is fine with going and checking blood sugars and everything, but I am just worried about her not being with me.
I dont want to be the over protective mother and she begged me to let her go with all her friends and coaches alone and not ride along on the bus.
Any suggestions on how to get over my anxiety?
