How do you guys who have been doing this for years handle the stress of dealing with D? Some days it really kicks my a@#!! When Andrew has a wacky high that makes no sense, I'll find myself feeling guilty - like I should have had him take more insulin than I did, so it is my fault. Let's face it - so much of this is guesswork! I figure his carbs, we own a Salter Scale - and use it! But no amount of measuring and factoring can gaurantee an in-range #...why do I feel so damn guilty when he is high - and especially when he goes low!!! Lately I've had to correct a few highs in the middle of the night, and I get so mad at myself for "doing that to him". The stress of constantly worrying is definitely getting to me - and of course, there are so many other stresses in life that have nothing to do with D, but D is a HUGE one, and I am just having a very hard time right now. I read posts here or on FB from some of you "Seasoned" parents and I realize - "These parents have been doing this for years - I have only been doing this for 2 months!!" How do you do it?!?! It doesn't sound like it ever gets better from what I read - you are all still battling highs and lows and the unpredictable-ness of it. I am exhausted just thinking about it! (Sigh) THANK YOU for letting me vent - there is no where else to do it! I don't know any other parents of a CWD, my husband feels all the same stress I do, and other people just don't get it. I am forever grateful to all of my CWD friends for letting me "virtually cry" on your shoulders!!:cwds: Just thought I would add - I have had at least 4 different people last week (one being the nurse at our endo's office that I speak to when I call) tell me that I am handling this all so well. One mom from my son's baseball team (her nephew has had T1 for 2 years) was amazed at "how together you are" and that Andrew is doing his own shots already. She said her SIL was a wreck for at least 6 months. I smiled and thanked her politely - but inside I was screaming, "I AM A WRECK!!!! I do NOT have it together!!" I never thought of myself as a good actress, but I must be. So, maybe it is a good thing that the stress I am feeling on the inside is not showing on the outside... I look at it as survival - I have 4 kids and a very busy schedule - I have to "keep on keepin' on!"
