On July 5, 2011 I received my test strips and lancets in the mail. I was so glad that I finally got the insurance to cover the diabetic supplies. I was sitting there looking at the strips and lancets and it hit me. This is what I will have to do for the rest of my life. I thought I was beginning to accept this but that is not the case. I feel just as bad as I did when I was first diagnosed November 4, 2010. It has been 8 months and I still can't seem to deal with it very well. My family is supportive but it is all overwhelming to me. Testing blood sugar, carb counting, A1C numbers, what you can eat, what you can't eat I am just tired. Does it get better?
