I am 56 and was diagnosed with T1 back in February. It has been a roller coaster until I got myself into Joslin. Although I feel fine physically the high and low BG is killing me mentally. I am tired and cranky. I have been on an insulin plan where I take a before meal dose based on what my number is at that time. I have an appointment tomorrow at Joslin to switch to the I:C plan where I will take my dose based on the carbs I am about to eat…but you all probably know this stuff!
I am considering the CGM but I am a terrible sleeper and when I had one on temporarily at the beginning of my diagnosis it was so uncomfortable to sleep. The thing would poke and I was afraid it would dislodge.
Anyway…today I am down. I have been trying to ride these emotions out as best I can. This is what it is and I can’t change it just learn to deal with it.
