i don’t know how old you are, Peyton, but maybe your mom is passing all the responsibility to you??? Which isn’t a safe idea, regardless of your age…I mean, if you were hanging from a cliff, ( figuratively, you were) would she say, “Sorry, you should have thought to bring a rope!” and totally ignore your cries? Diabetes is a family thing…we’re all in it together, because it affects everyone. Both my husband and I have D., and if he has a low, I would’t say, “You can’t have my candies, you should have brought your own”…what is that??? If we’re going out as a whole family, with our children, and a low creeps up, we deal with it right then and there…the other activity will HAVE TO WAIT. If your mom had missed a bit of your sister’s recital because she had to get a bar or whatever for you, so what? Your mom should bring some emergency supplies in her purse…for those “just in case” occasions…AND your little sister must be made to understand that they are a kind of medecine. What would be a good teaching tool, would be for your l. sister to bring her own little stash of candies for you (and one for her too!)…it’ll give a sense of responsibilty. What is she…3…4? It’s what you do when you have children…besides, your little sister IS taking all of this in, and if she sees your diabetes as being unimportant and a BIG inconvenience on everyone, well that’s how she will accept it. She will feel that she comes first, no matter what…after all, no one asks to get diabetes, right?..Take care…linda in canada!
