I have a daughter who is now 5 and was diagnosed at 2 but i still have days where I feel like I did something wrong and I feel like I am all alone dealing with the daily duties of managing her diabetes. My husband is around but his work hours always seem to leave me dealing with pump changes, sick days, and fighting to get her to sit still. She has also been hospitalized 2 times with in about 6 months. Both for DKA I feel like I am overwhelmed and that somedays I feel REALLY bad for her because she is the one that is going to have to deal with this for the rest of her life. I even lay in bed sometimes at night wondering what her life will be like when she goes to school next year and what can I do to make HER life easier. I also have a 1 year old and I feel like dealing with my oldest daughters diabetes makes me "favor" her and that I am leaving my youngest out. I just didn't know if this was a normal thing that will go away with time or is it always a mothers worry.
