I'm a single mother of a three year old, Carter, with T1. He was diagnosed about two weeks ago, the week before my finals at college. I was able to finish the semester, but I'm worried about going back to school in the fall (I already canceled my summer classes) and I've not been able to work since he was diagnosed. At the moment, my family is very nervous about learning to care for Carter, I kept him in the hospital when he was first diagnosed for a couple extra days so that they could learn how to take care of him. I was curious if anyone else has experienced this kind of anxiety with family members and if there's a possibility that they will come around. Just in case, I'm currently in the processing of finding an alternative form of childcare, because my grandparents were doing that for me previously. I guess what spurred me to post was that I had one of the hardest moments with him since we've been home. He said, "Mommy, why do you give me shots all the time?" It's very difficult to explain something like D to a three year old, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
