I was diagnosed at the age of 2, and since then have been fighting with type one diabetes. Me, doctors, and my parents have never been able to control my sugar levels. I'm 18 now and have been diagnosed for almost 17 years. I now pretty much live in a hospital bed. I've been admitted as an in patient 12 times since January. I could really use mental support right now.. please help me.

My prayers are with you, don't give up. I 'm a type 2. But probable really a type 1.5. I didn't have problems until my forties, but have two other immunosuppressed diseases going on. My sic was 18. Went thru a ton of oral meds with Really bad control. Was put on insulin and aic Is. 6 now . I have been bed ridden. From statin induced myopathy, suffered. Insulin shock to the eyes. And legally blind for 8 months, I just wanted to give up but I keep working at better control. I've found. That the doctors don't have answers, so I have done lots of research on line Maybe they are just missing something? My.vitamin D. And. b 12. Bottomed and that made control touchy for me. Don't give up. I understand your frustration. It's ok to scream, yell and be angry and if you need a friend. I'm here saying my prayers for you always. Donna

I hope and pray that some kind of treatment will help you. That's a very heavy load to carry. I'm only a grandma of 69! And have type 2 that's pretty much under control so I can only imagine what you are going thru, but I do have a 23yr old grandson with type 1. He works hard at staying in shape and try's to eat well but it certainly isn't easy. My prayers are with you to get your bloods even.
