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 happen to me and many of us later in life, it scares me. I feel the need to do something about it, to gtake better care of myself, but I dont know how and I don't know where to start.
I am 19, and live with my bf who alhtough very loving and supporting cannot always remember the difference between hyper and hypo. So I'm kinda on my own. I ofte crave sugary or fatty foods, and often give in. I play around with my insulin alhtough I know its bad for me, and when I go through bad patches, I often skip meals.
I dont wat to die. But often I dont wat to live either. So I toughen up and try my best to do my insulin and eat healthily. But still, reading so many posts about how other popel look after themselves, I know I could be doing so much better.
My question is, how do I find the motivation? Where do I start?
Waking up every morning is a good place to start, butany other suggestions would be welcome!
