It's been quite an adventure raising a now-teenager who was diagnosed with diabetes just after her first birthday! Please realize that what you'll read here is not intended as medical advice; it's just the ramblings of a sleep-deprived mom. Always consult your medical team about your treatment options, but do stop by from time to time for a bit of perspective.
There once was a girl with a meter.
They said diabetes would beat her.
She rose very tall
And said with some gall,
Fall? I won't even teeter.
