I've started to feel like I'm the only Dmom to do this. But we know another Type 1 family in our school, and I know that they do too. The other day, I mentioned in a post how I hate to say no to Daniel sometimes about food. After I re-read my post I was like "Uh,oh, someone is going to comment on that." Sure enough, someone did. I know that diet is part of managing D along with insulin, checking BG, exercise. I do sometimes (please note the sometimes) say no at certain times for certain foods in certain situations. The times I've mentioned this, however, I tend to get the feeling that no one else does this--that corrections are all that's needed. But if he's 350 and wants a doughnut, I feel it's prudent to say "not now" just as if one of my kids was sick with vomiting and wanted a doughnut--I'd just say no. I absolutely do not have any food on the "never" list--but some are on the "not usually" or "only sometimes" list. This seems to be a sensitive issue on this forum. I strive to keep Daniel's life as "normal" as possible and do say "yes" MOST times. But if I feel something is going to throw his BG way out of wack, I feel I'm doing the best thing for his health to say "not now"-----but NOT "not EVER." I can't ignore the fact that he has D. Insulin alone is not always the answer for us. I'm just wondering how diet plays into other D parents' management of their kids. Am I really the only "ogre mom" who says no at times??
