Hey everyone - I’m going through a really ****** time with my diabetes at the minute and feel really sad, alone and scared. I feel like I have no one to ever speak to or get advice from and even though I’ve had diabetes for 5 years nearly and my doc always tells me I manage well - I’ve pretty much been winging it for the whole time and feel like I’ve been guessing the whole thing!! Would really just like to find out some stuff and get to know other peoples stories - I’ll do a little one about me!! So my names briony, I’m a 27 year old executive assistant and work in London! I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in Nov 2014 after my first pregnancy and take apidra and Lantus. My hba1c on diagnosis was 10.4 and now it’s around 7. It’s never been above 8 since diagnosis and mainly below 7. Touch wood, I don’t have many other health problems, just a fast heart rate and absolutely terrible anxiety which I’ve suffered from since I was small! I have two beautiful kids and try not to let my diabetes get in the way of life but some days it really does hit me! Thanks and looking forward to hearing some of yours! It would be good to hear about how you’ve controlled your diabetes and how long you’ve suffered, if you struggle with anything in particular and any advice you can give me - thank you!!
