My name is Sarah, i am 17 years old, and i was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about 3 months ago. At first i was very accepting of this condition, i had accepted the fact that this is something i am going to have to live with the rest of my life. i always checked my blood sugar when i was supposed to, always took my shot on time and was never upset or conflicted about it. Now after learning about the possible illness and injuries that can come from this disease has me really scared. I am terrified to tell people that i have diabetes because i dont want anyone to see me differently than the girl theyve known since elementary school. I've gotten to where i slack off on testing my blood, on taking my insulin at the right times, and there was even a period of time where i could not give myself my shots. I can manage my meals and dosage, i just hate how hard it is for me right now. I find myself asking the question "why me" a lot now, and i just want to be happy again. I was just hoping someone could give any advice to me because im terrified and sad and i dont know how to overcome it. Please, if anyone has any words of advice or reasurance that all will be well again i would love to hear it.
