Everyone was new at some point. Welcome!
Hi @Glenn1144, A big welcome. We here all learn something about diabetes, share triumphs and defeats and find out answers to the reason for the universe existing. Although the last one is a never-ending quest, and trying to keep our diabetes under some semblance of control dwarfs all other considerations. We do have humour though to keeps us afloat. Please wander the site to see what threads on the forum may interest you, including use of the question box - RH top corner.
The Home page has all sorts of information as well.
There is no question so simple that one of us has not asked it in the past, so please ask away if there is anything you may wish to share or ask about.
.........................................Injections....................we are all in it together
Welcome to our very exclusive club. We are very fussy whom we admit to the club. Don't Panic - Douglas Adams.
Everything will seem overwhelming, but we have managed to wrangle D, that I we have it for our convenience. It obeys me, well at least some of the time. Don't let it take over your life. For about the first year you need to follow your medical teams guidance. You will eventually work out what your limits are. You will even have a bit of fun. Even 20 years ago this was a nasty little affliction, now with all the electronic gadgetry CGM and pumps and them now being connected together, it's becoming one of the kewl diseases, you will have to wait a while and master the daily injections before you can think of pumps, CGM you can get right into now (it may cost a pretty penny, depending on a number of factors). For most of us here it's now more a lifestyle than anything else. You have every right to go through a grieving process. Especially to start with it may get you down and depressed, but things will get much better and a whole lot easier, in a few months time, you will wonder what all the fuss and panic was about. Most of us have been there done that, there are a few here that got it as babies, so they know no different.
That's a reasonable bit of T1 time under yer belt.
So, how's the management going...?
