    When Sam was first diagnosed, a good few months went by where I had no clue how to dispose of our sharps containers. So the little coffee cans would fill up, and I would shove them under the kitchen sink. Once I figured it out, I dragged what I thought was all the canisters out and disposed of them.

    Today I decided to clean out my cabinet, and guess what I found? 7 little canisters shoved full of needles stacked neatly in the back. :)oyes it's been 2 years since I've cleaned under there)

    It just struck me hard. All the fears, anger, disbelief came rushing back to me. I sat on the floor and sobbed, remembering how strange and horrible the beginning of this diagnosis was. Funny how such a mundane little task reminded me of how different everything really is now.

    Stupid little needles.

    I shouldn't hate something that saves my sons life. But I do.

    (((Hugs)))) I know exactly how you feel. Sometimes the smallest thing can turn me into a puddle of tears, but it's good to cry it out and then pick yourself up and put on that smiley face again :) And remember, we're women and we're not supposed to burp or fart, so if we don't cry or nag we'll explode LOL Quote from an uncle of mine. :p

    This made me LOL-my husband's favorite quote.

    Thanks you guys. It really does feel better to let it out every once in awhile.

    I think a good cry now and then is therapuetic. And you probably felt a lot better afterwards.

    I am so there with you! We've been using milk jugs and detergent jugs with holes cut in the top and when they start to fill up you really start wrapping your head around how many times they've been poked and how many more times there are going to be....So you have my sympathy and heartfelt hugs :)

    I totally understand. I have a little basket of the boys' logbooks....from over 10 years ago. The first one still makes me cry.

    I too have all the sharps bins because you have to take them to a special place to dispose of them in Australia so no I didn't keep them because I wanted them but rather more I leave them there, the more I am reminded of what my son has to go through from day to day. Needles are dying down because we are on a pump now 6 mths after diagnosis but it still hurts to watch your children having to go through that.
    Hugs to you!!!

    I just saw a glimpse into your soul....and it was beautiful.
    That was so well put. Heartbreaking, but true.
