On Oct. 20, 2009 my 9 1/2 year old was put on insulin. I have come here for support. I am so glad to have other people I will be able to communicate with. I have been on the website reading as much as possible. Wow, this is a roller coaster that I know no one wants to ride. I cannot begin to understand much when the endro changes 3 variables each time we see or talk to her. This is crazy. I have tons of questions. JDRF contacted me immediately after visiting the endro the second time and asked to have a mentor family contact us. I have not talked to anyone and that has been almost a month. I did call JDRF back and they were going to have someone else to contact us and that still has not happened. My point is I need help from all of you wonderful moms/dads.
