I am a Nurse so I already had a pretty good idea that she had diabetes from her symptoms. I also know the medical side of it. What I am having trouble with is the Mom part. How do you deal with having to prick your child to test?What is the best meter you have found for your child? How do you deal with having to give them insulin injections? I have a meeting with her Pediatrician in the morning. But I need advise from parents. As a Nurse I have given hundreds of shots to children. But the though of pricking my baby and giving her Insulin injections just makes me cry. My husband just can not deal with needles at all ! How did you explain it to your child? Any advise would be appreciated.
Thank You,
Kali
Update: As I said I am a Nurse. I know the whole medical side of this. I need advise from parents or others who deal with this with their chilren!
