last friday my gp sent me to the emergency assessment unit at the hospital because i'd been feeling tired and unwell and very thirsty, had been weeing constantly, and had blurred vision. my blood glucose was very high and i had ketones in my urine. i spent the weekend in hospital and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. they taught me about testing, giving myself insulin, etc, and gave me loads of information to read. i've read all of it and have done research online and i've been doing everything they told me to, but i'm finding it very overwhelming, especially the fact that it's going to be this way forever!
