    thanks Eric,
    Sounds like you would be good buddies with my Sam!!
    I know I've been acused of groaning over high numbers, he gets upset as well. We have adopted a new mantra around here and that is just that whatever the number is, it is a guide so we know what to do--more insulin, or food.

    One other thing you didn't mention is that some parents talk about how tired they can be from middle of the night testing. I make it a point not to complain when I'm up at night testing, I dont want him to feel bad.

    Thank you so much for sharing. My daughter has just been diagnosed with Prediabetes and we have been told that she will be type1 in about 3-6months...based on her test results.

    I appreciate your candor, honestly and your positive attitude..Take good care and keep posting...you have alot of good information to share and coming from a parent. I say THANK YOU

    :Lisa

    thanks sweetie! i have tried hard to be strong for my son. he's almost 18, a senior in high school and in november, his high school soccer team won the state title(D1 and all) he' s headed to college in the fall and his numbers are often all over the place. we both cope pretty well with D(having four other kids in the house helps i think).
    you and my son are my HEROS!!! thanks for inspiring the rest of us!

    Well, it's mostly for random things. That was a while ago. I can't even remember...probably not calling my parents when hanging out with my friends or something...

    Hi Eric,
    Thanks so much for this. It has come at a great time, since we are 6 days into this life changing event. My son is a freestyle skier, and creating ski movies. We have tried to not let any of this change a thing, but I have noticed that we are guilty of lots of the comments you mentioned. Part of it is still ignorance to diabetes, but we are learning. I am going to pass this on to my son and husband.
    Thanks
