I am 28 years old, and have been a diabetic since 22. I have been through so much since the diagnosis and its been a very hard road.
I started out on diet control, then to oral meds, and now strictly insulin. Ive been on insulin for 4 years now. My problem is that I seem to get "used" to the insulin and it seems to stop working after a year or so.
The past year I have had so many problems with high blood sugars. I am seeing my endocrinologist every two weeks. He changed my insulin again, and it seems to be working really well. So well I had a low blood sugar episode.
I am so tired, and feel so horrible all the time. It seems so hard to deal with. I know I should be used to it, but with two small kids, it is so hard on me. Am I the only one who feels like this?? Sometimes I just want to cry. I feel broken and like damaged goods.
