I am new to DC. I was diagnosed with type 1, 22 years ago,I was 11. I have maintained a fairly positive attitude up to last few years. My A1C doesn't hardly go above 6. It seems like the longer I have it, the tougher it gets to stay positive. I struggle with whether I have to except that yes,it just stinks and I will have to deal the rest of my life with it taking over my life and defining me or if I just have to fight like I have and it, won't win. Where it gets frustrating is to do everything text book right and still struggle with unexplained highs or lows. It leaves me feeling like I can't win. I guess that's where I struggle. I have tried to stay positive because I knew I had a life long battle and I wanted the least amount of side affects as possible. But I have started to question if I need to just face that no matter what that is what my future holds and I just need to come to grips with it.But then I feel defeated. I hope that people with the same battle can help me be encouraged.
