I am new to the group and site so here it goes: I have had T1D for 22 years and I STILL can’t get me poop in a group! I started out on pills then eventually I was put on insulin very soon after being diagnosed. I don’t know what it is about keeping up with my BS but I don’t manage it. Don’t get me wrong I want to VERY VERY badly. Not only for myself but for my son and husband too. I keep telling myself “you can do this” and “I’ll start over tomorrow,” but I either don’t or the same thing happens the next day. On top of not checking my BS and taking my insulin I eat terribly! If I want candy; I am going to eat candy. I guess I just feel like I don’t have the time or energy to do this. I know I need to and I want to but it’s like the straw that broke the camel’s back. I do want to say thought that along with T1D, I have also been diagnosed with depression and anxiety due to depression.
Wow! Anyways any and all advice is very welcome and appreciated! I was also hoping to possibly find a “diabetes buddy.” Someone that can relate to what it’s like having this whole part of your life that you have to deal with and no one around you can relate.
