Hi Sylvia, having a son who was diagnosed last year type 1,who is only really just coming to terms with diabetes, its been a learning curb for all of us to understand the adjustments he has made to his lifestyle. The out look he now on his future has changed to what it was a year ago. He said to me a while ago, he feels like he has been given a second chance, and has made him rethink about how precious life is. Then when he thinks how he is doing quite well managing it he goes to the hospital and they tell him otherwise. Then he gets all rebellious and depressed. Somtimes i find it so hard to be able to understand what he is going through. Sending you both [HUGS]. Jan.
