Very well said Wilf! I agree completely! Andrew is 13, and when he is home, he always remembers to take insulin when he eats. BUT - when he is at a friends house or out with friends, he forgets to tell me everything he ate! He slept at a friends house last night - we have known this family since the boys were 3, so the mom and I pretty close. He texted me that he had "french bread pizza and 2 brownies". I called their house to ask questions (how big was the pizza? How big were the brownies?) and the mom said "did he tell you about the pasta salad and the Doritos?" I could hear Andrew in the background go "oh yeah! I forgot about those!" What this tells me is that my son is still a kid. At home, in his routine and normal surroundings, he does great. But throw in a few distractions, and he forgets things. That is normal kid behavior! I see his D management as MY responsibility right now. These are the teaching years for him, and honestly, 1 year into this damn disease - I feel my son is doing an amazing job. I will continue to teach and guide him over the next 5 years - and I will support him and continue to help him as much as I can when he is older. This is a huge burden for our children to bear - huge to us, and we are adults! I plan to help my son shoulder this burden for as long as he lets me!
