Type 1 Diabetic; And Alone

I was diagnosed when I was 7 years old and my mum was told if they never got me when they did I would have been dead in 24 hours. Even though they had diagnosed me with constipation 3 times in the past week. Since then I have just tried to except it and get on with it, I am the only person in my family with diabetes and have never felt like anybody understands how I feel some times they all think it's so easy. I just keep having lows now can't talk to nobody about it, I am sneaking sweets not given myself insulin even when I know I should and making out my blood sugars are good when I'm wwith others. I need help and done know what to do or who to talk to!!!!

Find other diabetics and form a group. It is surprising how much we can help one another.

Lows and highs are natural. Try to be high. There are positive things out there. find them when you can.

Thank you. I know but trying to find them is the hard part for me at the moment.
