So I'm leaving for California next week (117 hours to be exact not that I'm counting). I'm flying down by myself and since my family lives down there I'll be with them for 2 weeks until my parents come down. I'm super excited but the closer it gets the less excited I become. I'm a food lover and I tend to post pictures of my food on Facebook and my family down there is always telling me I CAN'T eat that. My family knows quite a bit about Type 2 my grandpa and uncle both have it but when it comes to Type 1 (like me) they don't have a clue. While I know that there are similarities they still aren't the same and my doctor is constantly telling me to eat what I want as long as I know the carb count. I become really frustrated that I can't have a conversation without it being brought up. While I have only had it for 4 months now I've gotten into the routine and I understand how serious it is. I wish everyone would relax and understand I take care of myself and I can tell when my blood sugar is lower than 90.
