So here i go ive had diabetes for ten years now and tbh never really taken care of myself for around the last 8years. After taking just enough insulin to get by over the last few years and a couple of dka,s ive decided i have to take a drastic life changing approach to this never ending battle. Thinking this is going to be an easy road is out of the question as i have forgoten more about the illness than i know now. Yes sure people tell me i should just (take my insulin 4 times a day) and check my sugars often but these are the people who dont have diabetes or are new to injections and dont realise how depressing this can be for some of us. Some diabetics dont even get phased and have and WILL be perfect diabetics and put people like me to shame and i wont lie i have respect for that but they are not me and they obv feel they have everything to live for when i never had anything or anyone to live for. That may be the reason i felt how i have this last decade living with type1 diabetes...
most people wont read this and if they do they might think (what a wolly lol) but everyone is different and unique and have different feelings about life, illness and how we SHOULD live. I guess time will tell if i can be better but it starts today whatever the outcome )
