I’m so excited and impressed that you came on here and not only asked for help but laid it out there what your downfalls are! You’re post will be a hope for others. Not many are ready to share their feelings and put their emotions out there.
T1D diagnosis at any age can be a life altering and mind blowing event. Many don’t even know wth a pancreas is lol.
Many doctors grow immune to the psychological effects because they see it daily. I’m willing to spend any time with you needed in helping you to get to a better place! My son was diagnosed at 15 months and is now 8 1/2. We have been through some of the most bizarre things relating to diabetes and can relate. Even when you have great control, you can still find yourself wearing a “what did you just say… diab-huh?”. I’m a mother of a T1D, daughter to a T1D, and a nurse to many patients with T1D. The good news is JDRF can always help put you in contact with someone amazing to help you learn.
Carbs, treating, hypo-lows, hyper-highs, illness, nutrition, etc. etc. etc… they will come to you. Truly they will. Again, I’m more than happy to talk to you or send you in the right direction.
Whatever you do, hats off to you for coming on here to start!
