So I need some advice...I have had type 1 for 8 years. I was diagnosed at the age of 17 and in the begining I was very controlled and had perfect sugars. The past few years I have been really really bad! I get going and do so well but then gain 3 pounds or have 1 high sugar and get discuraged and give up! The whole weight thing is a HUGE issue for me. Sometimes I wont take my insulin correctly just because I know it will make me lose weight. I have days were I don't even check my sugar once. But then days where it is perfect. I need some motivation or something! My father had diabetes and died of a heart attack at the age of 47...my 35 yr old sister is also type 1 and has already had a stroke both of these due to complications of diabetes and not taking care of themselves! Obviously I know the consequenses and long term effects...I have seen them first hand. But for some reason I cannot seem to get my ass in gear...I guess out of sight out of mind?
