Hi. I'm Sarah. I'm 25 and have been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes since May 10 2013 (two years)
For the first I'd say 18 months I was obsessed with my bm's, the whole carb counting and dosing and injecting insulin. Maintaining a perfect Hba1c. However for the last 6 months it's slowly creeping up on me and I'm starting to struggle to be honest.
I'm not checking my blood sugar for days. Just guessing how much insulin to take, if I bother to take it. I'm bingeing on all the wrong foods! I just feel so controlled by it and it's driving me mad!
I've tried telling my close family and friends and even confessed my lack of blood testing and i don't think anyone can see how I really feel.
On the flip side im glad they don't know as if they nag me I feel even more pressured and just want to rebel even more.
I've come here as I joined not long after being diagnosed. And just reading other peoples feelings helped me.
But I think finally I needed to share mine in hopes that someone can relate with me?!
I'm just fed up and tired and wish I didn't have it! I hate it!
