I don’t know of my posts reflect this, but for the most part I am a pretty optimistic person. I can go down the rabbit hole with worry but most days I do not. I try hard to not let my daughter get discouraged. I do agree with her that diabetes sucks and I sympathize with her that the inserts/shots/finger pricks hurt but I try not to let her fall into the burn-out that I know can happen. I am sure this will get harder and there will be times that she will rebel and feel the depression that can come with a life-changing diagnoses but I also hope and pray that she will overcome and remain optimistic about her future and the fulfilling life she can have while living with Type 1.
