I just need to express myself in a environment where I don’t feel judged and tudiabetes is that place.
On Monday I diagnosed my daughter with type 1 diabetes, she’s been drinking lots and her nappy has been overflowing, I done a few tests and they where high so I rushed her to A&E where it was confirmed.
I am so proud of her she’s only 2 and she’s so brave that’s why I call her my little firecracker. It’s made our bond even stronger but I feel so alone, everyone is saying how lucky she is to have someone like me who understands, who can help and guide her. I don’t mind that’s my rule as a mother but if nobody else even wants to try and get the hang of it all am I not going to get exhausted.
When she was healthy I can honestly say there was only one person who ever babysat her but now it’s all going to be on me. I love my girls more then anything in the world but I do need support as well. I don’t know it all and I can’t be strong for all of us.
