    Thanks for this link. Is anyone going to the workshop they are offering for Type 1 Teens and Parents on Dec 3? Would love to hear feedback on it.

    I agree with 90% of that,

    How many here think blood sugar readings should be private and secretive according to number 9?

    If a teenager is struggling and hiding those numbers a caring parent may need to intervene.

    My dd A1C is 6.2 and she is in completely capable of doing all of her D care, but once a week I look at her numbers with her, we tweaked basals with that information.

    I think the part you are talking about is for people who don't have a child with diabetes,

    Ok, just read this and realised what I must be like to live with and the weird thing is its probably what my son has been trying to tell me, I'm so quick to spot the mistakes we make! Oops x

    I so needed to read this tonight. My 15 yr. old is at a friend's house tonight. He was suppose to be just going over to watch the All-Star game. He calls at 10:00 wanting to stay over. This is a friend house that he hasn't ever stayed over at. There are 3 of his friends there and they are all staying. He was like...please just trust me to do this mom. He is very responsible but night-time scares the hell out of me. He doesn't wake up on his own when he is low. We have a plan and I am somewhat reluctantly giving it a try. I know I need to let him have some freedom to be a kid and not let D keep him from doing certain things...but it is so damn hard! I hate diabetes! Thanks for letting me vent. :mad:

    New links, anyone?

    Hi all...

    I know this thread is fairly old, but I'm hoping someone can provide updated links to the diabetes etiquette information that is noted in the original post. I'd love to read it but both links in this thread send me to a 404 error on the BDI website, and I haven't been able to find the info by searching on the site itself.

    Thanks in advance. =)

    I'm not sure if this is at all close to what Ellen posted, but it's one of my faves :):

    Hi Ellen - I haven't been on this site for several years - but I remember you from when I was an avid member. I couldn't open the "Etiquette..." page and I'd love to see it! Is there any way to access it?

    Thanks!
