This stupid condition, after 30 years of having it, has now reached a point where it is absolutely doing my head in.
The constant management of it, levels, insulin, unexplained sugar level drops / rises for no reason. Why can’t I go on a holiday and leave dianbetes at home?
I have had enough of the constant management to keep my levels at average 6.9, and either feeling crap or lethargic if they are too high or low. No-one I know has diabetes, I have no support, no one to talk too. I am so alone.
What do I do? How do I cope?
I am sick of this. I have this damm condition for the rest of my life – why? What did I do to deserve this? What hope have I got?
I have had enough.
Editors Note – many people feel like this at some stage with their diabetes. It is very important to realise there are other people who feel this way and reaching out to talk to these people via online forums and groups, in person support groups and seminars, can really make a difference. We can also offer counselling to people who are needing support about these feelings of “burn out” with their diabetes.
