My 10 year old daughter, Jo, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 8 weeks ago. We've had our ups and downs with coping with the life changing diagnosis and she's just started seeing the Pediatric Diabetic Psychologist.
Yesterday she started complaining that her stomach hurt but she was still eating and it didn't seem to bother her. Today however she's saying it hurts even more and is refusing to eat. I've spoke to the GP and the diabetic nurses who have told me to take her to the children's ward at our hospital. This would all be fine apart from my anxiety is soo bad at the moment. We're sitting in the waiting room waiting to be seen and I'm bearley holding myself together....writing this has helped a little and knowing I have to be here and I have to try to keep it together as much as possible for Jo and to understand what is going on are the only things keeping me here and not going into a full blown panic attack. There's other families here as well which isn't helping as I don't do well in places and situations I don't know
