My 14yr DD is so hard to get our of bed in the mornings....is this a common thing with diabetes?? She always seems so lethargic and takes a good 15-20 minutes to get her to get up!! This causes so much tension in my house of a morning, as my DH (her StepDad) gets quite cranky with me as he feels that I let her get away with it....I guess I do because I feel sorry for her, like she can't help it!! We also have her twin sister and my DH's son who is 8 and DH feels like I don't cut them any slack, so T1 14yr old should be treated the same. I'll admit I do let her get away with more (although this morning I had a bit of a yelling match with her) because I figure the other 2 children we have don't have to do all the crap that she has to do!! DH feels more like it's her trying to get away with everything, and just do what ever the hell she wants to do and I just allow it!! She was diagnosed 2 years ago. Sometimes I wish she had gotten it a lot younger so she wouldn't know a life any different! She is still so cranky about having to take her hypo kit wherever she goes, still cranky everytime I ask her to test, bolus etc. She was cranky this morning because I made her eat an english muffin for breakfast before she went to her friends house for the day! She hates having to eat when she's not hungry! I just wish I could take it from her and have it myself so she didn't have to even think about any of it!!
