I’m sorry you are having a difficult time with your daughter, well sorry she’s struggling so much with the cgm. My 8yo son has voiced similar reservations, though we are just 6wk into his Dx. We go tomorrow to pick his cgm up and learn about using it. It took him being exhausted with 3am checks and noticing the bags under Mommy’s eyes. He’s always been very considerate and sweet…he actually apologized for “getting” T1D, which was crushing.
He initially declared that he had no interest in anything like a cgm or pump and if he was willing to do the work, I was too. Finally, after watching several YouTube videos, he wanted to discuss it. Through long talks, a lengthy “T1D Challenges and Unexpected Benefits” list, and being frustrated with his sporadic BG numbers, he has decided to give it a try. I’m hopeful, at best, terrified he’s agreed to it for the wrong reasons…Well, I guess my point, in all of this rambling is that all we can do is make the tools available to them to make their lives as comfortable and free and normalized as possible and let them take the reins. After all, what else can we really do?
