Riley has been having a lot of highs but I have been getting more aggressive with her insulin so they are starting to come down. She has had a couple of lows because of it but not to bad. Anyhow she keeps crying out about hating her life and just melting down. Normally when high of course but I want to know how to help her not feel that way. Or at least ease the pain of that some. I am a little oh rough around the edges when it comes to life. Like suck it up this is how your life is you cant flip out every time you are high. I know it sucks for you and if there was anything I could do to make it go away I would. I am blunt about it. I care but I also think she needs to try and control her emotions high or not. She wont be able to function in this world if she doesnt. She is starting to do this at school as well. My husband will not allow her to do this he sends her straight to her room. In his opinion I let her walk all over me. I dont see it that way of course but she is very disrespectful towards me more so than him. I give her the chance to put herself in check she does but then she will do it again a few minutes later. So maybe he is right and I am wrong. I dont know I am searching for the balance between being a parent and being understanding to her attitude while high. Is there one? Any advice or opinions would be appreciated.
I have told her to do something else if she gets grumpy while high. To walk away from whatever is bugging her but all to often its me. Like I asked her what she wanted me to buy her for breakfasts before I went shopping. She said those sandwiches with holes in them. I asked what one? and she about flipped made a circle with her hands and with her eyes bugging out of her head said real slow and with major attitude the sandwiches with holes in them. I said ok you can have cereal all week. ugh she flipped out. She wont let me ask the questions I need to to figure out what she wants she can forget it. I dont know just a example of how she gets with me.
