I have had Type 1 diabetes for 11 years and I just can't seem to get over this feeling of hopelessness and denial. It's such an oppressive feeling that I want to change and I have people all around me who've been trying to help me change for a while but I just can't figure out why I can't get passed this. Am I depressed or am I just in heavy denial? I don't check my blood sugars like I should and when I ask people for help in reminding me they get fed up with me because I lose motivation after a few days. I know I can't depend on other people to help me, that this is something I just need to grip by the horns and take hole of but I just can't get passed this feeling of denial. I know what will happen to me if I don't take care of my diabetes, and I want to care but I just don't. What is my problem? Why can't I care about it as much as the people around me?
