Anybody willing to give a college student advice on how to manage her diabetes. At this point in my life it's just so hard and I don't know how to get back on the right lane.

Look at it as training for working life after your studies are over. Plan ahead. Stay active. Find a way to relax. Watch the booze intake, and know your limits. Keep your medi-tags on you all the time and teach people you know and trust what to do if things do ever go bad. Most of all, enjoy it - student life's awesome, working life is dull.

Stress will raise your BG. I just finished grad school and my BG is FINALLY back under 120! I'd say to be diligent, take care of yourself, try to stay healthy and get plenty of rest when you can! Best of luck!

Im in my second year of college. I started on the insulin pump during last term and realized that i had to up my basal rate a bit to handle the stress and i was planning my mrals more in advance and writing the carbs on everything i took to school to make eating a little easier. Too many other things to worry about!

I understand completely. I just started college and already my numbers seem to be higher than usual.
