    Experience of bad control

    Hello to family who were concerned about child’s poor control.
    I responded about my 2/3 years of poor control and warning I was given by doctor.
    The message I was trying to portray was one of our ability to come through those difficult times.
    My response was well meant but probably created more fear in family than it was a reassurance.
    My struggle included excess alcohol use; excess weight gain and blood glucose readings in the 40s.
    Many apologies.
    Ray B

    Hi Ray,

    I'm another son of a "T1 mom." No need to apologise. I think I know what you are referencing.
    We are after all, the possible "futures" of these kids. Though we are no fortune tellers.
    like everyone now & again there is the odd tunnel to travel through to find light at the other end..

    Best wishes. Stay safe. :)

    As an aside Ray, regarding hindsight as an adult.
    I found the easiest option for me to get those nurses & my mum off my back as a kid was to take that glass syringe & personally bang it in my leg.
    I found the patronising & hushed earnest adult tones over my head more uncomfortably longer lasting than the jabs.. :hilarious:
