I was diagnosed with Type 1 at the end of March. I had been feeling bad for a while, but was still shocked to find out the cause of my ailments. I think logically and I like answers. Not having a concrete reason as to why I have this disease is something that I struggle to wrap my head around.
Just when I think I have my numbers under control, I spike in one direction or the other for a couple days. I am a flight attendant and I have found that when I am working, my numbers are more irregular and harder to maintain than when I am off/at home. At my last endocrinology appointment, I signed the paperwork to get a CGM, but I am still waiting to be contacted/receive it.
My boyfriend whom I live with and my family are a wonderful support system, but I do not have any immediate family or close friends with Type 1 to confide in when I need to vent or ask questions. I’m hoping I can find that here.
