My First Post

My son just turned 13.
My son has Type 1 Diabetes.
As you can imagine this is causing me some degree of anxiety. One day he feels independant and the next very dependant. It is so hard to weed through all these emotions. Never sure if it is hormones, out of wack blood sugar, or just a bad day. I hope to find some other folks who are experiencing the same problems. I know I'm not alone, but sometimes it sure feels like it!

Hi Sherry.

You are definitely not alone, not in the slightest. There are a couple of hundred bloggers out there writing about diabetes, and they represent just a small percentage of the diabetic population.

I have been a type 1 since I was about six and I marked my twentieth year this past September. I know what you mean about it being so hard to weed through all these emotions. If there is anything I can do to help, or if I can just lend an ear, it would be my pleasure.

All the best!!

Sherry. I was dx'd when I was 12 and 1 day shy of being 25. I went through the tough years and as Kerri said you are not alone.
