I was diagnosed only a month ago with type 1, wow what a shock that was. I only went to the docs for a routine pill check up!. It has been such a whirlwind since then and I haven't really had much of a chance to let it all sink in.
I have felt low a few times in my mood especially when I am having to check my sugars as I feel 'funny'. I am 39yrs old, work full time in a job I love, have a 15yr old son and also parents where one is currently unable to get around very well! my thoughts when I found out is what I have done to deserve this. My life has now changed and as much as I say to people i'm fine, i'm not, not really. Food used to be fun but now I am feeling that it is not fun anymore, I cannot just got and eat something when I want to, I have to carefully plan everything including nights out.
Just when I think that I am finally getting to grips with it all some other problems rears it's head that I didn't know about, will I ever learn everything. Sugars go high when I am due my period but then today I have the start of a cold and have found that my levels go low, well they are lower than they have been.
My hair is falling out and the other day I was so tempted to just get it all cut off, I managed to tell myself that it will be ok and should sort itself out soon.
My gosh, reading this back and I sound like a right moaner, I just feel really down, I am going through this on my own as I am a single parent and can't put any of this on my 15yr old who is as you can imagine going through his own stuff being a teenager.
Hopefully after the weekend of trying to rest and work through some of this I may be in a better place!
