just came from a visit to the pedi for allergies, and the nurse asks if dd is still on insulin and if i have to give her shots everyday. yes and yes. i was so naive when dd was first diagnosed. i was under the impression that if i did a good enough job of measuring out all the food and dosing exactly as prescribed that her numbers would be perfect and all would be right with the world. it took a while for me to accept that good enough most of the time is the best we are going to get with managing T1D. There's no perfect.
