    As many of you know I have spent the last 8 moaning about the lack of information and suport for parents of type 1 children. My doctor has refered me onto an expert training program. I got all the information today and it appears to be for type 2 only. I'm just a bit concerned that they have offered me this to shut me up. If anyone out there thinks it will be benifical I would of course go. I just want to be sure as I will have to get time off work and get childcare for all three children as its definalty not parent friendly hours.

    Hope you are all well.

    I did contact them. They asked me to set up a local group.

    I did say I would help but couldn't do it alone. They never got back to me.
