ever since i was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes i have put it on the back burner and sometimes will go for weeks without checking my blood sugars. but always in the back of my mind i know that i am slowly killing myself and it makes me so sad. i feel overwhelmed by this disease and feel that it is the worst thing i could have been given. its so hard for me to be motivated to take care of myself. my life is so busy and hectic i forget i have diabetes and forget i have this pump attached to my body (i know, crazy!) and to be honest, when im out with friends and they dont have to even think about what goes in their mouths i dont think about it either. i have delt with anxiety and depression ever since i was diagnosed. my mood swings are crazy. im ready to go back to my fun loving normal self. my intention of joining this site was so that i can talk/meet people who are going through the same thing as me and who understand. i know nobody where i live with diabetes and feel so alone. being in your 20's with such a life-changing disease is very stressful to me and very dfficult to manage. but, i am ready to start doing better with my management and need some help! anybody in their 20's feel the same way or have any words of wisdom?? im on my last straw...somethings gotta give.
