i have been diabetic since nine.it isn't hereditary and i've never been overweight.and i'll nip the myth that it comes from sweets because i only got those every 3 months or so. i want a world where i can talk to people who understand without running into the diabetic police who think every diabetic is the same.i've been on syringes,the pump and now the flex pen. although i check my levels,diet and exercise religiously my a1c has been 11 for 6 months with many hospital stays because of DKA OR DIABETIC KETONE ACIDOSIS. i'm sick of being told to stop eating sweets because i'm not eating them i do have a high stress level and the older i get the worse it gets i've been on google and facebook looking for other type 1 diabetics but every one else is type two. i'm at the point wher i wanna say screw it i don't want to do this everyday anymore. so i'm reaching out hoping someone may have a story,advice or words of wisdom.
