Welcome to DF. Although none of my children were diabetics they were all teenagers. This is very normal behavior for 18 year olds. I know as a mom you want to do everything to protect your children but sometimes you have to let go a little, even if they fail. This is part of growing up. On anothr forum I remember several type 1's saying they went through a similar stage in their late teens and early 20's. But finally came to their senses. You have done all you can by providing her with doctors and counselors she needs. I would tell her you love her and you trust her to make the right decisions about her health, but don't make them for her.

My youngest is now 21 and still has a mind of her own and doesn't need mom for anything, except my credit card.
