Hi! My name is Ashley. Im 24 and was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes this month. I was in the hospital last Friday, (Same day I found out I had diabetes) for having my BS at 699. I was immediately put on insulin but my body was rejecting the insulin and now also on pills to help my body accept the insulin. It feels like alot of this is all hitting me at one time. I never thought this would be somthing I would be worrying about at this age and so it is really depressing. I don't know how people deal with it. I work full time, go to school full time, and a single parent who takes care of my son by myself and I just can't find the time to take my insuln and kinda embarressed to take it when I am with friends and family. If I don't then I feel horrible. I know it sounds stupid but I don't have time to plan meals, and I am always on the run so thats as good as excercise gets. How does everyone manage their condition?
