My name is Ali. .. I am 21 - and my world got tipped on it's end last September 25th when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes...
I did really well for the first few months! I had consistent bg levels in the low 100's, etc - and then the Christmas invasion of candied confections hit; wonderful pies, and other such sweetness hit me like a train of temptation bound for diabetes hell.
I injected a lot of insulin - and I gained weight. A lot of the weight that I had lost before my diagnosis. Depressing.
Since then I have struggled to get my numbers back to where they were... And now I am seriously considering getting the pump... With the hope that maybe, just maybe the pump might help me keep my numbers where they are supposed to be - instead of flying all over the place.
I am still so knew to everything, and have so much to learn!!!!
