Re: [IP] Diagnosis of a young child (kinda long)

The one thing that I feel is important here for people is to understand that 
the 'friend' everyone is referring to is really the sister-in-law of the post 
writer, and that it is HER friend whose child is newly diagnosed.  Because 
the SIL is not going through the required training to learn about the disease 
process and how to deal with it on a daily basis she(SIL) is very confused 
about the idea of giving shots to a young child.  We can try hard to inform 
as many people as possible, but in this case a person can only do so much.  
This SIL is not personally involved and really can not seem to grasp the 
idea.  One person did suggest that it be explained like HRT where the body 
has stopped producing the hormone and needs to get it in another fashion.  
That would be a really good way to explain it.

Otherwise, all we can do is hope that the parent of the child is learning and 
has good support system other than this lady (SIL to the writer of the post).
