Today marks two weeks since my six-year-old's diagnosis. I don't want to sound from my subject line like we're not handling it well, because I think we are. My son, for the most part, is handling it wonderfully. But, he keeps saying he doesn't feel well or complaining of headaches. I don't know if it's his body adjusting to the insulin, a high, a low, or just him being a kid and not wanting to be at school.
Every day he goes to the nurse's office and says he doesn't feel well. Sometimes his BG is right on target, sometimes it's a little high. When it's a little high, I have them take him to the gym to run a little (for 5 minutes or so), retest, and send him back to class. We talk to the school nurse or teacher multiple times each day, which is reassuring and I wouldn't discourage. When will he start feeling better, and when will I stop worrying constantly?
