  • nice story for read


  • Thank you, he’s does see Pediatrician,,think I might have to ask about strategies.Do feel alone ,we get isolated as other parents don’t want hypo kids running a mock in there hour .Which is fair enough.

    • I think asking about strategies is a good idea. Something to help you deal with the situation and giving you tools for coping.


  • I know this sounds upfront, but has he been to see a paediatrician or specialising dr in this field. Perhaps they can offer some advice on strategies and available support networks and programs. You shouldn’t have to go through this alone.
