So first I wanted to say thanks for all the answers I got on the last post. They were all very helpful so thanks!
——— Ok so Im 15 and I've been diagnosed for 2 and 1/2 yrs and every time I go to the endo he says I'm still in the "honeymoon" phase. Last time I went was 3 months ago and am due to go next month. But lately my sugars have been higher than normal and no matter what I do it won't go back to normal. Am I coming out of the honeymoon stage? My sugars are usually well controlled and I don't know what is going on. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! Thanks(:

The honeymoon stage refers to a time that your pancreas is still producing some insulin, so it is much easier to keep your blood sugars under control. I would assume that since your blood sugar levels are rising and are getting harder to control that you would be coming out of that phase. But you should probably talk with your doctor about it so that you can adjust your management plan to accomodate for your body changing and blood sugar levels rising.

I have heard "honeymoon phase" too, but I am not certain what it means.
It sounds to me like you got diabetes at exactly the same time in your life as I did, but with me it was almost 38 years ago.
Don't be afraid to tell your doctor about your high blood sugars, adolesence causes changes in you body that can play havoc on them.
