Well we have been "dealing" with Diabetes for 6 actual months now... Its been that long since Craig was diagnosed..
I kind of cant believe it..
well, actually some days I look at my kids when that needle pierces their skin and I almost cant believe they really have this...for the rest of their lives...Its almost unreal..
It will NEVER go away....
And although I have tried very hard to stay positive, because thats all you CAN do,
I wish it WOULD go away...
I wish Madi didnt have little bruises at her injection sites..
I wish we didnt have to wake the kids up when they are trying to sleep so that we can check their blood..
I wish they could play with out worry of glucose or extra carbs..
I wish I could leave them with a sitter and not worry..
I wish they could go out with their friends and not have to carry a backpack full of essentials..
I wish they didnt have the worries of type 1 constantly on their mind..
I really wish I did not have to inject a needle in them several times a day..
I wish we didnt have to count every carb they ate...
I wish we didnt have to add hundreds of dollars to our monthly budget because although we have great insurance, we have copays, and supplies they NEED..
I wish my purse wasnt filled with needles, meters, snacks, and glucose tablets...
and most of all, I wish my kids didnt have to think twice about eating something, playing or running around....
My kids are strong..
And so brave!
They get at least 24 pokes a day between both of them..
A needle or Lancet pierces their skin 24 times every day!
And there nothing they can do about it but be brave.....
I love them so much!
