My son was dx November 13th. He was doing so well for the first couple of weeks and is now coming to the realization that this is not a temporary thing. He tenses up now before finger pricks and shots, cries and says that he doesn't want to anymore. I don't know how to make it easier. I've tried tough love, explaining in children's terms why his pancreas is not doing what it should, I've told him how brave he is and have poked myself a few times to help. He has an inner sadness now that rips me apart. Any advice would help.
