I posted this on the General Discussion thread....then realized I really need help from type 1 parents...so I'm reposting here. Forgive me....... Hi Everyone.....My 9-year-old son was diagnosed with type 1 in March of this year. At first, I was doing great---I guess going on adrenaline. In August, everything hit me and I'm just so down. All I want to do is sleep all day. I'm eating poorly, not exercising....I feel terrible from the lack of sleep and not taking care of myself. I know I need to do better, but I don't feel like it. I had my yearly OBGYN appointment today. My doctor is very understanding and said she would prescribe medication for me if I want her to do that. But I'm not sure what to do. I thought maybe I'd give it a couple more weeks and see how it goes.... Has this happened to any of you? I would love any advice. I feel really alone right now.
