As much as I love my daughter and know that her end of this disease is much worse then mine, I can't help but feel like I want to scream and hide! One meal without BG testing, one meal without counting carbs, one day without trying to flush ketones, one day to just be "a normal mom" again.
Something as small as grocery shopping can be down right depressing. Making a list of healthy meal and snacks full of protein, low on carbs. Reading EVERY set of nutritional facts. Watching parents let their kids choose whichever cereal they want off the shelf without worrying about what that particular cereal might do to their blood sugar. Are these feelings normal?
