    You are now man and diabetes - there is another consolation it won't elbow in the ribs when you snore, take all the covers and 75% of the bed whilst aleep. And it doesn't take up all the wardrobe spece with shoes, handbags and coats!

    Remember this ...

    Happy Wife, Happy Life!!!

    Welcome to the forum.

    I'm a mother with a 2 yr old T1. Today (and yesterday) he is sick so I've had about 3 hours sleep. Lucky his father left me when he was 10 weeks old or I'd be getting pretty cranky about now. Spent all day yesterday keeping his blood sugar up with sugar in his bottle and today I'm diluting his bottle of milk and near doubling his insulin. His bs is still 19 but coming down.

    Hope everyone else is having a better day.

    Jen.

    Poor Jen :(
    Hope by now it's all sorted. I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you. It was hard enough for my mum, and I was 12 when I got it. Can't even say 'hope it gets better soon' since well .. ok, the control should get better, I guess :) I hope you have people around to talk to, when it gets tough :)

    I luv it - very funny. (Unlike the Wife) It does all those things but as I am beginning to understand, you can't fight it but you can live well on it.

    I joined today and I am already enthused.

    Good luck

    PS

    Jen you have my total respect. I complain about my T1 and you have put it into context. I hope today is a much better day for you and Khaleb.

    Take Care
