Hi everyone, I'm a little disappointed to be joining this group but glad that y'all are here! My three year old Susu was diagnosed T1D on 16 February after a month of crankiness, a horrible diaper rash that wouldn't go away and constant thirst. I had my suspicions, as my grandmother is T1D, but was hoping for something else. I took her to the doctor after one particularly bad night of drinking three gallons of water in a 12 hour period, and we were immediately sent to Seattle Children's, where she spent 5 days. It's even more frustrating to me as I suffer from SLE and my older daughter has Asperger's syndrome and is bipolar. Susu was my healthy one . We are still adjusting, although I've been around T1D my whole life, it's a whole different ballgame when it's my own child. Susu is still fighting her shots every once in a while, and her BG is still running high (upper 200s- 500s) while the endo team adjusts her dosages. She is also constantly hungry, and no amount of free snacks fills her up. So frustrating. Anyways, this is my introduction and I look forward to talking with y'all!
