I'm sure many of you have seen the episode of Intervention with the 21 year old non-compliant type 1. I am seeing it for the first time, and it is absolutely heartbreaking. I expected to see this kid that was full of ego and was just a jerk. After just 30 minutes, I see how he was alienated from other kids, even though he tried, as a kid. And then in high school his girlfriend left him, and he became immediately non-compliant. Just now there was a part where he was supposed to meet up with some "friends" from work, and they ended up ditching him and leaving him at the restaurant by himself. It was so sad to see him sitting there alone, calling them to see if they were coming. And then to see how much his mom was suffering. I'm not quite sure what to make of it all just yet, other than to feel reinforced that we are doing the right thing by letting her live her life as normally as possible and adopting whatever technology is necessary to make her diabetes as minimally invasive as possible. I don't know, you just do all you can and hope for the best.
