It can be really isolating! Like you, I was diagnosed within the last year, and for me, this is a looong adjustment process. The highs and lows are so frustrating and stressful- sometimes I know why they happen and I struggle with blaming myself, and other times I don't know why, and that in itself is scary. I'm thinking of looking for a therapist who specializes in working with people dealing with chronic illness.
Black Llama- Sorry about your late night low. That's a good idea to use the chatroom at odd times when people nearby are asleep. I would never have thought of that, as I haven't really explored the chat feature, but it seems like an excellent use for it.
