Hi everyone! I'm Nikki. My daugher is 15 years old and was diagnosed right before her 8th birthday. Things were good (well, as good as could be expected) until she turned 13. Since then things have been spiraling out of control. Her most recent A1C was 12.4. We go again in August but I don't expect the numbers to be any better. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle. Anything I try to do to help her is met with a fight and resistance. For example, we just got the Dexcom continuous glocose meter. I was so excited. She was less than... The first DAY was great but after that it was just another fight. A fight changing the site, a fight getting her to keep the app open on her phone so I could monitor it. Just yesterday I got a call from her Dad (we're divorced) saying she had spent the night with her friend and accidentally threw away the sensor. And of course, the friend's garbage pick up ran that day, so now it's gone. I can't afford to replace it so I'm back where I started. Hopeless. I'm completely empty. I'm tired of fighting. I'm ready to give up. I don't know what to do. How can you help someone who refuses to help themselves. You can't rescue someone who won't participate in their own rescue. She lies about eating, checking her sugar, etc. She has gained a ton of weight. She is up to 204 pounds. When her sugar is high (almost always) she wets the bed. And I don't mean a little. It's a living nightmare. It smells up my whole house. At 15, how does that still happen??? I can't get through to her. Her endocronologist can't get through to her. The only thing I know to do is tell her, I will make sure you have insulin and supplies. I will take you to your Dr visits. Other than that, it's all you. IF you need help or have a question, I am here. But I can't keep up this trying to control it. It is destroying me, our relationship and our family. I have two other children, both younger than her. They need a happy engaged mom. Right now I am a depressed, hopless, ready to jump off of a building mom. Any advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
