Discussion in 'Parents of Children with Type 1' started by Heather(CA), Jan 12, 2012.
Wow...I would never have guessed that needing to wake a child up to treat a low might disrupt their sleep and if done multiple times in one night it might even leave them sleepy the next day (sarcastic eye roll and head shaking).
wow! what a shock! Broken sleep makes a person tired! Cause broken sleep is something my family knows NOTHING about! (Hi, my name is Libby and I haven't slept over 4 hours straight in almost eleven years)
In the next ground-breaking study they'll discover that the parents of t1d kids and adolescents are crankier, more coffee-dependent, and more tired at work than parents of non-t1ds.
Previous discussion on this topic from yesterday here:
I'm not really sure what the point of this article is.... (not the thread, the article)
I commented "what is this article suggesting? that type one's stop testing at night??? personally I'd rather be tired than dead, just my opinion =)"
Thanks for the laugh - made my spit my coffee at the laptop monitor, but well worth it! Yes, it's 2:15pm and I'm still drinking coffee. That, and propping eyelids open with toothpicks - it's been an interesting last few nights... So glad you all don't need a study like this to understand that one.
