Today is one of those days that I dread. I have to take Jessie to see her specialist. I always feel like a little kid being dragged into the principals office. Her doctor is a great doctor,but I dread it just the same.

Jessica's blood sugars have NEVER been where they should be. Since the day that she was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 3, we have struggled. Now that she is older, and away from me so much, be it at school or with her friends, I have even less control over what happens with her. We check her bg, buy her the sugar free stuff, make sure that she does her needles....It doesn't seem to matter. Her boold sugars stay the same.


It all comes back on me because I am the mom. Of course it does. I can barely manage my own life right now, never mind keeping on top of Jessica. I always worry that her sperm donor will put up a fuss and start custody proceedings. Silly, really, because he hasn't seen her years, doesn't call, and is disputing the amount of support that he should be paying. He has become very spiteful, hateful even, and I just can't shake the feeling that he is looking for any reason to cause me trouble. (He has been a real pain lately, I just haven't blogged about it. It brings me down too much to even discuss it)

So, in another hour or so we will head out to the hospital to see her doctor. I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes well. I will breathe easy when we are home again. Wish us well.

Biddie- Be sure and let us know how it turns out. I didn't know your daughter has diabetes. That is tough to manage at any age. I'll be thinking about you today!

Biddie, I feel for you. I've always been hypoglycemic, so I have the opposite problem. Hard to deal with when you're a kid. Have you looked into alternative therapies? Maybe see a naturopath, or a holistic practitioner. Sometimes there are other solutions, if you know where to look. But you do have to look, because the government does it's best to prevent them from being known, to keep us sick and dependant on drugs. All the best to you and your beautiful daughter.

What can you do, Biddie? It's just another gray hair in your head.

She's got beatiful eyes n she's your baby n she'll be fine.

Hope all went well today hon. Please let us know how you made out. As hard as I am finding it at times to be a diabetic, I am grateful neither of my gremlins have it yet...hopefully they never will.

Y'all are in my thoughts and prayers.

There's nothing worse than watching your kids get sick. My little one has a fever right now, and I don't like it a bit.

As many have said, we'll keep thinking of you and your daughter.

As per the 'sperm donor', well, we're talking about a dick after all, aren't we? :-)

Stay concerned, but don't be afraid.
