Hey all. I'm dealing with an issue right now with our daughter, diagnosed in May upon her return home from a very stress filled Sophomore year in college. She seems to be struggling right now back at school. She had been having no issues, even while studying abroad this July, with controlling her sugar. She's a child who enjoys learning, so she dug in and found out what she needed to do to lead a "normal" life. She has CHOSEN not to go on the pump, though her doctor originally didn't want her on it because he wanted her to learn how to manage the disease first. She is having issues now - lots of stress from her major where she spends a lot of time working on projects. She's having a harder time keeping her levels in check, even though she's "doing everything she's supposed to". I could tell this past week something was wrong, and last night she called and finally broke down. Has been having bad dreams about losing consciousness from low blood sugar -- which fortunately has never happened to her. It's so hard because she is in Virginia - and we are at least a 7 hour drive from her by car. She loves to cook, and frequents a gourmet shop near campus, having also taken cooking classes there, so this week, before I knew how bad things were, I sent her a gift card to the shop just to surprise her. But my questions are: Have any of you had to deal with helping boost your child's morale long distance? What sorts of things did you do? I'd love to send her a care package, but as picky as she can be about many things, what does one send?
