    The thread is called :- What is your hardest struggle with diabetes ? I would love to say I haven't had any and it's a piece of cake, but that would be a big fat lie. I have had many over 3 decades, the constant working out of Insulin for carbs, exercise, pregnancy, childbirth, monthly's, menopause, work, illness, which is affecting me at the moment and the constant struggle to get things right and balanced. It can be exhausting, upsetting at times. frustrating and sometimes you just want it to stop !
    There is never a day off from all that type 1 involves. this is from my own experience and nothing to do with any other type of diabetes.

    I'm on Xarelto for life, also an anticoagulant. I don't have to have my blood tested for INR, but I know that with certain types of meds you do. Was just wondering if it might be worth your while to look into switching to Xarelto ...? Could save you one source of frustration :)
