I hear you. My take on things is somewhat different than most. I grew up with no technology. I had to boil urine specimens 4x’s a day. Also had to boil
my hypodermic needle. I don’t want to turn you off with the "blues, so I say embrace the technology and things will slowly get better. I strongly suggest the Joslin Center. They have programs for you to participate in while they medically teach and treat you. You attend workshops with other diabetics. There are more than one centers across the US. Go on line and check it out. One last thing. While I was in High School in the late 60’s (Yes; NDY, not dead yet) I was in the yearly Science Fair with a project on diabetes. I wrote a poem,
There it is. My life or my death.
My life if I use it, my death if I don’t.
If I look upon it as necessary, helpful
and life giving-I am well off.
If I defy it, and hate it, and
it-then I am dead!
Why me?- God wanted it.
Why not her?- God wanted it.
How long? - Forever!
It has become a part of me,
A part of my life.
It is my food.
It helps me. It makes me more like others.
It enables me to live.
It is my life!!!
And I am grateful.
Well, hannahraay, I hope I helped a little. Keep in touch, MeGhee
