Im fed up with shots. I'm the only one in my school with diabetes and I'm a teenager. After every shot my skin gets even more bruised, even more sensitive. After every shot it gets harder, I find my self immersed in a book full of wonder at their lives. My mom tells me I dont even live in reality and has on occasion, taken my book away. This is not how my life should be

Yes…that sounds real rough. Your skin gets even more bruised after every shot you said…that's probably because we as diabetics don't heal well, or heal very little. I have the same problem with really old cuts and wounds. I am not currently on insulin everyday , but, I wish you the best and will pray for you..I'm 41 years old…sincerely, ANNE

I'm so sorry to hear about your problem. None of like or want this disease, but when it's a child, or teenager like yourself, it just seems even more wrong. I assume you are using different areas for your shots? As for your book reading, i LOVE to read, i'm totaly into paramoral romances. I love the magic, vampires, werewolves and all that! It's so much fun. Ya it's an escape, but that helps. As long as you can tell reality from fiction, i think your prob ok. Your mom might just be worried because she wants you to be happy and thinks you hiding in books is unhealthy. Maybe , if you can, you could try and explain how you are hurting so bad and reading helps. If she doesnt get it is there someone else in your family that could intercede on your behalf? I will pray for you on this. Can i ask if it's not too personel. Are you depressed? This is overwhelming for alot of people, know matter the age. Depending on where you live, there are usually support groups around and classes you could look into to try and get some help. Knowledge is key, as a reader you know that. Impower yourself. Don't look at it as a curse, try and look at it as a challenge or a quest. YOU are going to beat this into submission!!! I hope this helps you in some way. If you want to chat somemore, just click on my name and hit me up. Maybe we could be friends? I will leave that up to you. I'm here if you need to vent. God Bless you and good luck.. Mickey
