I have had type 1 diabetes for 2 years. I am 17 years old and this is how I feel about diabetes.
It’s the most annoying disease.
I hate living my life, everyday I have to take injections and check my blood glucose levels.
Editors note: Lots of people feel like this about diabetes at some point and it is perfectly normal to feel this way! Often it take time and for some people (especially young people), this can take years – to get used to diabetes and find ways of having a happy life and positive wellbeing, while living with diabetes. It is important to seek support during this time, which can really help in adjusting to life with diabetes.
