I just turned 31 years old, and about 8 months ago I had the whipple surgery and my whole pancreas was removed, which left me a type 1 diabetic literally overnight. I have been having trouble with choosing my meals and insulin dosage since I got out of the hospital. Over the last couple of weeks I just got to the point where I don't eat for days because besides the fact that since the surgery I have horrible gas pain after I eat or drink anything, I hate sticking myself with the needles. Some days its fine, but there are only a few spots on my body that don't really hurt when I have to inject myself, and after a while of using the same spots they become sore so it hurts anyway. I stopped eating because the last couple of times I had to inject myself I was literally in tears. I'm sick of this already, and it's never going away. Has anybody experienced this?
