Hello everyone my name is Chelci (pronounced like Chelsea). I am new to this site and I found it because I was searching for some advice concerning my disease. I am a type 1 diabetic and have been since the summer of '04. I am now 19 years old going on 20 in November. Like I said I was searching for help because for some reason or another I cannot accept being a diabetic. For the first two years of this new life, I did a really good job keeping my blood sugars in check and taking my insulin. But ever since high school everything has gone downhill. My A1c reading has hit an all time high of 12. I am out of control and I need some kind of help. I don't know what's wrong. I know the complications of diabetes but I just can't accept it. Does anyone have any advice? Maybe meeting other diabetics and befriending them will help me. I'm not sure. Any and all responses are greatly appreciated. I feel alone in this battle. Help!
