Children with T1DM face many issues of self-esteem, even after they've been treating their T1DM for a while. Among the reasons are
1 The feeling that you must be a bad person or have done something wrong to have been stuck with such a bad disease i The idea that diabetes makes you less handsome or pretty than your friends
1 The notion that you're mentally inferior, particularly when you've had hypoglycemia and think that it has damaged your brain i The fear that you may someday give this disease to your child i The fear of the complications of T1DM that will make you less of a human being i The fact that you must constantly plan when to eat, what to eat, when to take your medication, when to test, and so forth unlike your friends without diabetes i The reliance that you have on others, including parents and doctors
These are realistic fears, although most of them are based upon myth and not fact. I address them in the following sections.
