Very brave everyone that have to go through this. And i am so proud of my daughter.

My name is Ms. Edwards and I have a 12 year old daughter who has been diagnosed since she was seven and I have been struggling with the same situation not counting her carbs and not wanting to take her insulin. What I have gone through to help her cope with her situation is reached out to programs that offers her counselling and eat what she eats. I’ve also given her a psychiatric evaluation to ensure that she is accepting or understands her condition is really not going to go away but can get better by watching what she chooses to eat and portion size. Go on and on but we can talk if you have questions perhaps I can help I’ve always been looking out for groups and all the parents that I can relate to with what I’m going through it is very frustrating and it is stressful but we’re coping with it little by little she seems to be getting a little bit better I also enrolled her in activities like track. In conclusion giving her a balanced meal of at least 45 grams per meal and having her do some exercise on a daily basis does help to keep her sugar down and I even bought her a small little bag to keep her medication discreet it looks like a little purse but it’s insulated. hopefully this was helpful and you can reach out to me anytime
