- Relationship to Diabetes
Hi, I’m new here. My healthy 11 year old son was diagnosed T1 in July three days after his birthday after becoming sick and hospitalised with DKA. I feel now that the initial shock is lifting that I’m almost grieving for the care-free life he had ahead of him! He starts secondary school in September too which is a big enough life change to deal with. I’ts hard to get my head around it all, especially as he’s always been so fit and well to this point! Why is life so cruel? Thankfully he’s dealing with it very well so far but I wish with all my heart he didn’t have to!
