Sure it has been on here before, but here goes. How do any of the parents out there get through this without completely losing it after a while? Colby my four year-old son was diagnosed December 2008 and at last clinic appt. it was suggested to test more frequently at night. So my boyfriend and I decided to just do it every night since Colby had recently seized at night and been super low in the morning. We switch off...which is wonderful.
Colby is low (endo does not want him lower than 120 during the night) more often than not, so 1am test-low and treat, 1:20 retest-usually ok, 3:30am test again-usually ok. Just when I feel like I am used to it, I have an angry period...where I just want it all to stop, for it to just go away completely. The most frustrating part is that we follow the snack instructions for bedtime to a 'T' and he is on Lantus. I have an email in to our endo, but just wanted to know how other parents deal with this?
