to echo a little in what @Dennis has said, your daughter will watch you. If you are in despair, she’ll feel alone an din despair, if you take good care of yourself, she’ll feel differently about taking care of herself.
@diana, please let me be absolutely clear. the is no cure for type 1 diabetes, not in the US, and not anywhere on planet earth. there are research focus areas in immunology and cell regrowth, but there is no cure. Furthermore, no one is close to a cure either. There are no companies indicating they are in Phase I clinical trials for anything having to do with a cure for type 1 diabetes. A Phase I clinical trial would be an early (3-7 years with positive trial results) indication that someone or some group was close to a cure.
I completely identify with your daughters point of view. It took me a long time to get out of the “victim” role. It can be debilitating. It can be related to depression. I really think the way to deal with it is to ensure she has a safe place to talk about her feelings. If she looses interest in things you know she loves, becomes withdrawn, or shows any other signs of depression I urge you to consider some kind of therapy for her.
as down as I was, I eventually found a way out and with support and with therapy, I was able to turn my life back around again. one major thought was to stop wasting my life waiting for a cure. I gave up 7 years clutching to the idea that a cure would save me. This is a portion of my life I cannot get back. Another change in thinking was to help others. a third was to force myself to get involved and to never isolate. Please reach out to the JDRF and to see if there are local chapters and local involvement… anything so she doesn’t feel isolated. there may be summer camps she can participate in where having diabetes is the norm.
good luck and please check back in
