hope I am not known on here as the one who complains/vents a lot but lately that's what I have done. I am a pretty positive person ,this is just my safe place to do my complaining. Anyhow, to get to the point, I was at the health food store today getting some vitamins, and I mentioned that my 7 year old is a little "off" lately - mood swings, teary, etc. She says well perhaps it is blood sugar related. I said I know all about it because of my 5 year old has d. Then she says her husband was dx'd at 18 with type 1. So we talk a bit more and she says he has been on 2 shots a day since dx. Has not adjusted his insulin has not been to a dr. in 13 years had one low of 1.6 once because she changed his peanut butter to an all natural one....I left there going OMG. She says he has GREAT control, blah blah blah. I just was mad 1. I didn't think she really seemed to get it even though she is married to someone with it, 2. I know how bloody hard all of us work to get good numbers and there is some guy out there walking about getting two shots a day for probably 18 years. Then I look at the other side and if all of that is true and this guy is complication free and we are using the most recent technology then our son should be doing great down the road as well. Not sure if this post makes sense but it just really irked me how "oh ya it's no big deal" way she talked about it. It makes me almost not want to go back in to that store.
