Hi! Just wanted to introduce myself. My daughter Tori is 11, and was dx'd T1D just about 1 year ago. She is currently on MDI - Novolog & Lantus, and doing amazingly well! I keep wondering when/if she is going to meltdown....and this last week it finally happened. Not sure what triggered it, maybe a combination of things. She is just finishing 5th grade, and feels very comfortable at school with her teachers & nurses. Next year she will go to the middle school, and everything changes! Also, she has been expressing interest in getting a pump, but the more research and info we look at, the more upset she seems to be. Maybe the reality of this lifestyle is just setting in....maybe she's entering that wonderful adolescent stage (she is almost 12)...either way, she is feeling very different and very alone at this point! Her Dr. told us about this forum, and she has posted a message in the kids area in hopes of meeting and talking to some other kids "just like her". -Thanks!
