any mothers out there who just get those days when if it wasnt enough running after the kids all day, but managing your diabetes too?!
Yes, Yes and Yes!!! I was DX when my daughters were 10yrs. old and 1yrs. old. I was so tired and stressed…it is not until now (16 yrs. later) that I don’t have to run around like crazy, my youngest drives and is a sr. in high school. I have 2 granddaughters age 7 and 3 and I can only handle them BOTH for a day!!! I would have to skip injections when I really need to correct a high, because I was going in all directions and didn’t want a low bs…too hard when you are looking after others. good luck and I’m sure many MOM’s can relate.
Yeah, I get those days all the time, with the children off school at the moment and its pouring rain, I am finding it hard to entertain them. When it’s really stressful my blds do go high.
how about 24-7, I work part time and have 2 daughters 11 and 5, they keep me busy enough, and still have to find time for diabetes stuff, but since I went on the pump, a little easier, you are definatly not alone
uggh, I feel your pain. I was diagnosed last year with type 1 - what a life changing experience.
The pump has made it a little easier, but running around after a 7, 5 and 3 year old make it so difficult. I find myself with way too many low blood sugars. It is just so hard to gage the activitiy level.
The 5-7 hours are the worst - with dinner and baths and homework, etc, and struggling not to go low, some days i feel like I am going to lose it. There are some moments when I am yelling my kids and can’t understand why i am so upset. That’s when I will check my #s, and low and behold I will be low.
As if being a mom wasn’t hard enough…
