My 2 year old Daughter was Diagnosed with Type 1 on May 25,2009. I'm just feeling so alone because I'm a single mom and have no help at home. And I feel I have no one to talk to about anything that I am feeling. Also I feel that my co-workers are sick of me talking about it. Thinking,"Well you told us she has it what more do you want from us?" I feel like they don't understand what I am going through.
I'm trying to stay strong for my girl because she doesn't understand herself. She just sees mommy and others poking her with pointy things. And some family thinks that I have to stay strong for her, but I am starting to fall apart fast.......Sometime I ask god, "Haven't I and my daughter been through enough? Why us?"
Also I feel guilty because I wish I had time for myself. A night off or just a couple hours just to take in a little R & R. I used to have one night off a week but since she has been diagnosed I feel I need to be with her and others are too afraid to have her stay the night without me there. I'm not Supermom, but they sure seem to think so.
So.....I'm writing here to talk and wondering.....What to do when I'm feeling overwhelmed? What do you do? When others don't seem to want to listen? Any advice would be wonderful. Thanks for reading.
