Hi everyone, I have 2 beautiful children and my eldest who is 9 was diagnosed as type 1 back in January. It came as a massive shock and at first he was treating with finger pricks and pens, then got the dexcom g6 and now has an insulin pump. He is amazing with it and it really doesn't seem to phase him. Like at half 4 the other morning he woke me up because he'd managed to pull his cannula out in his sleep so I had to put a new one in. If that was me I'd be so annoyed be he just takes it in his stride. At the moment though, I'm just so angry at the situation. He keeps having night time highs a couple of hours after going to bed. Sometimes he can be pretty steady but sometimes he has a big spike and no amount of insulin will being him down for a couple of hours. I hate it so much. I think it's only now I've got to grips with this being the rest of his life and I just wish I could take it from him and put it on myself!
