"I think that you need to say to him, that you want to treat this as a new start, as if just diagnosed and for him to explain to you about it again. What treatment schedules he recommends, about testing, sick day rules etc etc. You are right, you do…"

"I think any time you switch doctors it is a "new start." You have to develop the relationship with the doctor and their office. You have to learn their quirks and their way of thinking, just as they have to learn yours. If you go into it…"

"Doesn't seem at all weird to me, in fact it sounds totally sensible! Get all the input you can from the new endo without 'coloring' it with what you've been doing. Take his/her advice home, and decide what you want to keep doing…"

Starting over after 23 years

I am a type 1 diabetic and have been so for over 23 years. I need some advice or words of wisdom on this particular matter. I have extremely unhappy with my previous doctors and in 2 weeks will be going to a new doctor. Here is the thing, I want to start over! I want to go into the doctor's office and have them treat me like I have just been diagnosed. Is that weird? I feel like I have been following the same routine and guidelines that I was given years ago and I know that there are so many…See More

Me:

Hi my name is Jen! I am a type 1 diabetic going on for 20 years now! The main reason I am here is for support for others and to share my story. I do not know if anyone out there has heard of diabulemia but its an eating disorder found in the diabetic community amoung young women and teen girls. Well I went through it and I am still trying o live with the consequences of my actions. If there is anyone out there who would like to ask questions or chat about whatever....hit me up! I can only let you know what I went through to help so you dont have to suffer!
