Week 1 with Type 1 Diabetes

We got home and scheduled appt. with pediatrician right away. Saw the endocrinologist right away. We got all the supplies, all the insulin but all the education was a blur from so many sleepless nights. Elyssa would have highs in the 400s and would have the worst temper tantrums. She would pull her hair out, hit her head on the floor, throw things, scratch her face and we would try to calm her down but sometimes I would just cry. This was not my daughter and I just kept saying to myself  I want my daughter back. I would correct her highs and give sufficient insulin for food but nothing was helping.
