I've been type one for over a year now. For the whole first year I was misdiagnosed as a type two. I've just now gotten an insulin pump system. My town has no type of support group for fellow type one diabetics. My family always says that they're going through this with me but they're not the ones who have to live with it the rest of their lives. I'm depressed and tired of always being told I can't eat this or that while everyone else sits there and eats whatever right in front of me. It's the holiday season and everyone is so happy and cheerful and I'm at the point I don't want to celebrate anything anymore. I feel alone in all of this. I want to be happy and celebrate the holidays but I feel like I have no happiness left in me to give or to even show. It's at the point even faking being happy isn't working anymore. I don't know what to do.
