Kristin V, living with diabetes since 1994

Type 1 Diabetes

If I had to pinpoint a "diabetes downfall" from my past, it would be overwhelming frustration when I was doing everything I was supposed to be doing, and still had days where my blood sugars were not where they should be.  Approaching 30 years of diabetes -- you might do the same exact things to days in a row, and get different results.  But don't give up!  That is really the nature of diabetes, in my experience.  IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S THE BETES.  Share with your medical team what is going on and learn on them when you're frustrated.
