Struggling

Published by Jamietf in the blog Jamietf's blog. Views: 175

Hi all, I'm a typical 21 year old like to have fun. I got diagnosed nearly 8years ago and I struggle a lot with my diabetes I'm type 1 and inject up to 5 times a day....I've been in hospital up to 3 times now as I find it hard to control my sugars I don't really get help off family as they don't understand it and I've got to be honest a bit stubborn and don't like the help. I really wanna turn my life around and get better with it I asked for the pump and my nurse told me no. The worst time I find to control it is at work I can work up to 45/50 hours a week but the shift are all over the place as I'm a waitress and work on the bar. If any one could help with suggestions would be a major help! Thanks
