It does get better. I cried for long time too. Its all normal now.
I keep supplies in car. things for lows-we like the fruit rollups/gummies, lancets, needles, pump supplies. Its real hard to give insulin if you don'thave needle. btdt.
keep a meter/flashlight by her bed for nighttime checks.
you don't need to pay for meters. every meter companie should give you at least 2 freeones, sometimes your insurance co. will give you one. and then you'll get one in bag of hope, and your endo should have some free ones.
Oh and one last thing. you may have noticed they're cranky when high, and sometimes low.
oh the "sugar free" candy-really isn't-have to do weird math to figure carbs for them, and it will give them tummy aches if they eat alot. I think you subtract the sugar alcohols from total carbs, but not sure.
oh and we eat same things as we used to. I initially got rid of alot of things in pantry. sara still eats cookies, donuts, cake etc etc. we just eat healthy diet, and she must bolus for carbs eaten.
Oh I see your from Emporia va! I'm in Frederickburg. You'll must see the endo's in richmond. We see Kari McCray NP I like her a lot.
