I just joined this support group in hopes to connect with people with T1D. I was diagnosed last year on my birthday (Yay me!) and ended up in ICU and had all the symptoms of being diabetic. Like others I have seen on here, I was misdiagnosed as Type 2 because I was diagnosed at 31. However, after further testing, it was determined that I was type 1. With that said to fast forward—1 year and 3 Endocrinologist later I am still feeling like I am newly diagnosed. My new doctor I just saw 3 weeks ago has me on a CMS temporarily and new diabetic classes. I am hopeful this time around that I will get the help and direction I truly need since I am very unstable with my levels still. I am overly exhausted as it is but now I don’t get sleep because I can’t sleep, increased hunger but try to fight eating more than I have to because i don’t want to raise my levels, and not to mention stress over this who new life adjustment. This is a big struggle and frustrating! Any help on coping with T1D? How do you stay encouraged after your moment by moment of reading a number determines your day?
I appreciate any and all input. I am sure I will have more questions.
