    Sticking to a regimen is hard; sticking to it over the holidays is even harder. Well meaning relatives are always telling people with diabetes how they can have something which they know they shouldn’t. People without diabetes should realize they are not sufficiently trained to encourage their loved ones to cheat and are doing harm. When somebody says no thank you, respect that and move on.

    Hi Amy, I just came across your blog/website. My son is 26 and has had type 1 since he was 7. I would love to join a forum or a group of parents of adult children with type 1. I have no one to talk to and vent to who really understands how I feel at times.
    Happy Hanukkah.

    Cindy: There are some members of the Diabetes Online Community on twitter who are in those shoes, as parents of older CWD who’ve now grown up. Also, there’s some of our own parents who respond to posts and emails and might be willing to keep in touch. Shoot me an email… I’m easy enough to find through my blog or twitter, and I can connect with you with my own mom.
