Dear Everyone

Posted on September 22, 2011 at 5:09pm 4 Comments

Dear everyone, and I put to everyone because I think everyone has felt like this!

I try not to be self centres about my diabetes: there are worse things to have right? But recently my weight has really been getting me down. Sounds like such a simple thing right? Just get some exercise and eat better I head you cry!

Juggling university, working 2-3 days a week, flat upkeep and looking after (not all the time i mean) a bipolar boyfriend (he's not sick just now but his mood… Continue

Please Help!

Hey Guys, I was wondeirng if you could possibly healp me...I've been a type one diabetic for over ten years now, and although my control isn't fantastic, it's usually kept vaguely on track. But recently, my sugar levels have been screaming high, no matter how much insulin I do, but then I occasionally crash and go hypo. My levels are particularlyt high in the mornings, even if they've been okay before bed. It's really getting to me, and I can't see a doctor until June. Does anyone know why this… Continue

I Need Help!

I write this post attemptig to speak as not just me-as other people, young or old who may be feeling the same and desparately need advice and guidance!

I told someone the other day I have had diabetes for ten years and his response was "wow, you must be a pro at it now!"

And his answer filled with such misery and dread that it realyl made me think. I still ahve NO IDEA what I'm doing with my Diabetes. And hearing stroies about all the terrible things that could…


A little trip to the clinic...

Posted on August 25, 2009 at 11:40am 2 Comments

Here's an interesting story for you if you're....interested.

So a couple of months back I was living in a situation, where I was fed a high sugar diet and had little control over it;think host family who were determinded to kill me through cake and caramelized carrots...

I was doing a ton of insulin, but not checking my levels, because I'm a *bad* diabetic.

So when I arrived home again, I was testing every hour or two, doing a lot of insulin, and basically despatately trying to… Continue

Why why why do I do it to myself?

Posted on August 24, 2009 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

Why I ask, do I insist on eating too much sugar? I didn't NEED those sweets, but my levels went a little low and I ended up eating too many. My levels are now high.


Am I the only person who does this?! I went over to my boyfriends house today and I always just end up eating more there. It really bothers me. No amount of insulin seems to be able to cope with the ridiculous amount of sugar I ate.

Yes I'm angry at myself. I don't know why I don't just listen to those voices in… Continue

Yes my A1C was 9.5 last time i got tested, like last month. I'm working on bringing it down from 11 also, and it's getting there! I used to have a pump but with my A1C being as high as it is, they took me off of it--my choice. I'm more in control with shots..but hey, that's just me! i do miss my minimed though}:
Good luck at the University that does sound very exciting!! i'd do anything to get out of this high school of minee :p what are you planning on majoring?
