Advise from my 12 year old daughter

So, I have been having some bad episodes lately. My blood sugars have been going extremely low. This has caused me to pass out a few times. I hate when this happens because I don't remember what happens during this time.  My kids are well trained on these situations by now.  They know to call their grandmother (my mom) whenever this happens. They tell her whatever is happening and she comes to our house to help the kids while I am "out of it".  This happened this past week and I guess it really scared the kids. My blood sugar went down to 51. That is the lowest it  has ever went. I guess this led to my son having a panic attack and he started to "stress eat" as he tells me. I couldn't quite figure out what he meant when he told me this. He said he just started eating and couldn't stop. He was eating anything and everything he could, even though he wasn't hungry.  We are working through this problem.  He is in counseling so and I made sure it was discussed with his counselor.  I guess my 12 year old daughter was a real inspiration during this time. She remained calm and tried keeping my son calmed down while taking care of me. I am so proud of her for that. She is really maturing.

It is amazing to see how much my children have had to mature because of me. They are growing up so fast and getting very mature.  They know how to handle many difficult medical situations now. We are also working on an emergency plan for any kind of situation they can think up that they aren't sure of what to do yet.  They always want to be prepared and for that I am very proud of them.

My daughter advised my son to just relax and know that mom would be ok. God is taking care of all of us so she knew we would all be ok. Very smart girl. I'm so proud of her.
