our diabetes sweeties! at their joint endo appointment. Our sweetie has been using a pump now for a few months and our sweetie pie wants to start using a pump! He does not like shots. He just went through his honeymoon period where we had to keep reducing his insulin due to his body trying to provide its own insulin sporadically. The honeymoon period, ironically named, is the time where the pancreas dies. Its the vampire time of transition from the body fighting for life and producing its own insulin to finally giving up and accepting injections of insulin as life support. After diagnosis, you have to wait out the honeymoon. You know he has diabetes and start treatments, yet his body fights. It wants to live and survive but it will slowly just give up the fight. You just have to wait for the honeymoon to be over. But its not a honeymoon to know that your son's pancreas is dying. If we didn't have bottles of insulin in the fridge, he would slowly die too.
