Hi, some of you know I posted a few days back about the massive insulin overdose my daughter had.. Of course it's to be treated seriously but I think the person on here with the sig that says "Trust your gut...it's always right" has got the right idea. I did not take her off the pump.. I did not go overboard into hysterics (on the outside anyway), but I did get help. I know my daughter and I know the crisis had passed. Her demeanour and body language and the discussion we had, told me so. She spoke of the incredible pain in her head and shoulders and the discomfort from the drip etc and how she doesn't want to go through that again. She is in hospital now to be assessed. I feel perhaps it is part of her process of coming to terms with this hellish disease, rather than simply a suicide attempt per se.. (pleeease, if you feel the need to judge me or throw superiority at me - then DON'T, just take it elsewhere). If you're going to give it, be prepared to take it. To those who PM'd me, I just wanted to thank you all for your love, support and prayers. To those who took the opportunity to lay the boots in and judge and criticize me and insinuate I'm a bad mother, all I can say is keep looking in your own backyard. As I don't have the time or energy to respond to each one, I wanted to post this as an update and a thank you The school is still pushing heavily for her to "take more responsibility" so I'll need to steel myself to stand up to that. I feel she crumbled under the weight of the responsibility and the school will need to re-think their position and M.O. to be a more child-focused one. A friend suggests I move her to a different school, but whose to say it will be any better? Also, we have to start afresh with a whole new bunch of kids etc etc.. not fun for most kids, let alone one who's 'different'
