@Annette I’d never thought of it like that. I’ve always thought more along the lines of @Lizz . I’ve always assumed that no one is going to be the perfect parent all of the time and any limitations diabetes may put on me are pretty minor in the grand scheme of things. Any poor child of mine may be equally scarred by my impatience and occassional overwhelming drive to get stuff done as by being left to cry a little longer because I need to eat first. I don’t doubt being a mother is an incredibly challenging job, and adding diabetes into the mix can only make things harder, but I don’t think it’s an insurmountable challenge.
