Re: [IPp] hard living with diabetes



Gina,
I haven't gone through this yet, my daughters siblings are too young.  I'm
sure it will come up in our family too though!  It is heart breaking how
this disease affects everyone in the family.  The only thing I can think of
is to be understanding of your daughters feelings (of course) but also talk
to her about what her brother has to go through every day and will always
have to deal with!  It will be interesting to see what advice other people
who have dealt with this have to give, I will be taking notes.
