My daughter has just been diagnoised 3 weeks ago. We spent our first week in hospital knowing absolutly nothing about anything. I was terrified when I heard DKA. i had know idea what that meant and then when the doctor told me what it was, I was horrified, I thought my angel was leaving me. Her blood sugars were at 88 and I don't know what or how she is still with us, but she is and together we are learning how to live with diabetes. there is soooo much to know and right now I am still so afraid that something will go wrong. I know we are going to have good days and some not so good days. All I see when I close my eyes is numbers-blood sugar, carbs, what time is it, how much NPH, novorapid.... and now school has started back as well and we have 4 other children, all school age, thank goodness, but she is having a tough time. She doesn't want to go to school, and I totally understand, but I want her to start learning what to do because her WHOLE life has changed now. I don't really have a question, I am just getting this out. thanks.
