    I felt the same when I was diagnosed... I was 12 years old and kept thinking why me?! I never checked my bloods and just guessed how much insulin to inject but you need to try and take care of yourself!

    I know it's tough to come to terms with and you probably don't know anyone else but your not alone. I'm sure your family is supportive and they just want what's best for you :)
    I promise, the sooner your sugars are in control, you will feel a million times better both mentally and physically! Drop me a message if you need someone to chat to :)

    When I was a teen I hated it, and still do, but I learned to put it first, I was in and out of hospital up until 2 and a half years ago, the pump helped, but for 19 years I was like you, so know how you feel. Its not easy but you'll soon get used to it, I wish I had help like this, I wouldn't have problems with my eyes, and severe nerve damage if I did. Good luck

    Hiya, I'm 18 and got diagnosed when I was 4 as strange as it sounds considering by 16 I'd had it for a long time I went through something similar and it was awful but trust me it gets better :)

    Hey, I've been type 1 for only 5 months now and I'm in the total same situation! I feel down all the time, I always cry and my moods just change within seconds, one minute I'm really happy then the next I'm really angry :( I really feel like I'm pushing people away two, hopefully it will get better for us both :)

    I had the same feelings, i was in trouble with the police and in school, it did get better, the drs told me it was because i was a teen, but i know now it is diabetes, which i have never even after 21 years come to terms with, but i don't let it get me down or beat me.

    Cheers, Paul.
