Okay. Deep breath. I am so depressed lately and sick and tired of diabetes. Honestly, its all I think about. I have to really try to get my mind on something else to keep from wasting all day thinking about basals, how much two cough drops will raise her sugar, when there will be some significant improvement in treatment, scouring the internet for research advances. I'm totally obsessed. My daughter was diagnosed 3 years ago. I feel like I did better the first two years than I'm doing now. Granted she's 10 and growing, pre-pubescent....all of those things that make this disease unpredictable and logically I understand all this should be expected, but I'm completely exhausted and bitter at the moment. I hate to bring a negative thread to this forum, but I just have to vent. My husband is very nonchalant about diabetes and I don't feel like he understands. So, can any of you tell me that this will get better? We don't have a CGMS and I feel like that would help with some of my obsession with her going low at night. We are currently on the OMnipod and planning to change to Minimed simply because the heat and high humidity 9 months of the year where we live really causes problems with the omnipod staying on. Her last A1c was up to 7.6 from 6.8 just 3 months prior. There are so many things going wrong right now. I feel defeated. 'Mom of diabetic' burnout. FYI, my daughter handles all this much better than me. I never say a negative word around her since she has the rest of her life to deal with this burden. Dr appts are a chance to go to the galleria, and checking BS at school is a trip with her BFF to the nurse's office. She really seems only slightly affected by this roller coaster. Thank God for that.
