Welcome MAY

Thank goodness that April is over. Now we just have 1 more month of school, Adams b-day is coming up, wow I am going to have an official "teenager" on my hands. I have a few things that I have to do this month but nothing as busy as I was in April. Maybe I can relax a little this month.

On the Diabetes monster , the kids are doing ok. Tay keeps getting this weird funky low thing that goes on in the morning. She wakes up at a decent number but then drops rapidly for some reason. Then it comes back up, sometimes not for an hour sometimes right away. I keep trying to figure it out , thinking that its some gastro-intestinal thingy. Atleast I am hoping that's what it is.

I really hate this disease. I hate the worry that comes with it. I hate the watching every thing that my kids do or don't do. I hate the constant obcessing i do. I hate that they have to worry or that when they feel bad i still have to get them to go to school. I hate that it interfers with how i can parent my kids. I hate it. I hate that i do everything i can and still sometimes its not enough. I hate that i feel i have to make them "normal" just to prove to people that they are. I hate that only people with this know what the hell i am talking about. I hate that there isn't more i can do. I hate that its a struggle every day just to feed( the right way) my kids and that i get the looks from strangers. I hate that i get festrated with this. I hate that they get festrated. I hate that thier lifes revolve around this stupid thing that has infected our lives. I hate that i have to worry about medical insurance now and forever. I hate that sometimes i want to give up. I hate that some days i do give up. I hate that some days i have to start all over. I hate that some times they don't understand why i am so mad. I hate that i have to be mad. I hate that i don't get more support.

Now that i have ranted and raved, i thinki can move on for now. I thinki really need to get some stuff straight and in order but its so overwhelming some times.

Well behaved women rarely make history!

    What you are feeling is totally normal. Diabetes is fraustrating. But it seems like you are doing well.

    I think some of the morning lows you describe would go away if doctor took them off the N. N has weird peaks.
