Listen up Newbie!
This is NOT your fault!
You are not a rotten parent!
Diabetes is a vicious enemy and it will resort to psychological operations. Making you think you did something to cause this is one of it's head games!
Read the service manual on psy-ops and insulin resistance here! Do not let the bastard get into your head.
ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME RECRUIT! (Virtual spit flying from my lip)
Lows happen! In time they need to happen and he/she needs to learn to feel them.
You are now a HUGE target market for drug companies. That doesn't mean insulin is a bad thing. Your brothers and sisters in arms at Children with Diabetes, Type1Parents or ADA can help you sort out what good and what's bad. Talk to your buddies.
Now drop and calibrate the meter to 20!
