Hello, my name is Allie. I am 25yrs old and I was diagnosed with diabetes in May 2006. I just found out on this past Wednesday that i have type 1. I am not really sure what that means.
I am just so confused on what I should be doing.
I just got back on my insulin after being off of it for 2 months.
Sometimes I really don’t care if I take the insulin, then I realize if I don’t get my sugar under control I will not be around for my boys (they are 17months and 3yrs old).
When I was first diagnosed my A1C levels were at 13.9%, now they are down to 11.7%
Not really good but better than they were. I guess part of me is really depressed.
With my first son the doctor checked my sugar and said it was really high but no big deal, just to watch my diet. Ha ha like that worked. With my second son I was transferred to a high risk doctor because my sugars were running really high. I was put on insulin right away. It worked and after I had my son they said my sugars were normal. So back to normal life I went but, it didn’t last long.
Now I am wondering why in the world I got this when no one else in my family has diabetes. Most of my family is overweight. So why did I have to get this at such a young age??
I am just so confused.
