    I've been missing from CWD for a long time with having an adult now with type 1. ;)

    I'm at what's almost an end stage of parenting where my son is engaged, building a house of his own, and extremely busy with career and life in general. It's sorta difficult not being connected to the daily, weekly, even monthly diabetes details. I am grateful this week when he had 3-4 omnipod disconnects in 1 day he called ole mom and pop the next night to share the craziness. He knows where to go when he wants to share D details and who will be there eager and interested to listen. That's our role now and though it's been an adjustment - I'm thankful. :cwds::cwds:

    Soon, you'll be like my Mum and not worry at all, except in a all worry Mum way in general, because she knows I do my best!:D

    For those of us still in the trenches, these posts are nice to read! I'm glad your son is doing so well!

    I was hoping some parents would like to hear the perspective on this end of families living with diabetes. Thank you for your affirming reply. :cwds::cwds:

    This is very much the same as my relationship with my son. At first it is a bit strange, but now I welcome it, and he knows that I am eager and willing to listen and pass along any info that I find out that he likely wouldn't know about otherwise. I still have to be involved in my daughter's care, and will even when she moves out later this year, so I do appreciate not having to worry about my son now. At least not so much. He lives alone and if he doesn't answer a text from me for hours, then my imagination takes over and I do have to call him.

    For me, I wouldn't say this has been a welcome change necessarily, but it's one I've had to make. Also it's been my experience that the worry hasn't subsided. :wink: No one hands us a handbook on how to handle an adult child flying the nest when type 1 diabetes is part of the equation. We just hope we find our way sooner rather than later.

    Hi Caspi! I thought disappearing was better than creating drama. :wink: Miss you too!
