What brings you down-Diabetes blog week-day 3

The hardest part about caring for a child with type 1 is the constant worry.  Some days its enough to bring me to tears. 

I'm always worring even if it doesn't show....

Did I give right amount of insulin?
Did I pack him enough snacks?
Will he remember to eat the snacks when he should? 
If he's low will he notice in time to treat before passing out? 
Will he finish his lunch?
Dammit why is he high....or low?

And a million other thoughts that run through my head on a daily basis......its so mentally exhausting!!!  Justin worries about it I'm sure, but I dread the day he has to do everything on his own.  I hate that my sweet little boy will have to deal with the mental exhaustion as well as all the pokes everyday.   It just gives me one more thing to worry about.
