I think that if you read through some of the other posts on this forum, you will find you’re far from being alone. Having type 1 diabetes means we have A LOT more to deal with than perfectly healthy people.
It’s great that you do things on your own. A lot of people lack that sense of independence, and you should be proud of yourself for that. However, it’s important to remember that you shouldn’t feel ashamed of asking people for help. Take that independent spirit and take control of your body. YOU are in control of your life and YOUR future. Who cares about what other people think or if people don’t like the idea of diabetes. You don’t need them!
I used to have a lottt of internal anger that I packed away and hid after I got diagnosed. I still find it difficult to talk about my emotions concerning diabetes, but I learned that it really, really helps to vent. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to your friends or family about it (I know that can be hard sometimes) feel free to message me, or maybe even try talking to a school counselor. It really helps to talk out your feelings and lay everything out on the line.
Anxiety is a lot more common than you may think, and of course having health issues doesn’t help it! I think it would be really beneficial for you to talk to someone. I promise, everything feels so much better when you get everything off of your chest and take a better look at your life. You’ll be okay!! Don’t forget that you have a huuuuge support group, right here on this forum <3
