I've been insulin dependent diabetic for a while and I've not always had the best control, recently it's been really bad.
I live a very busy and hectic life. It's stressful but in a way that I thrive off. I'm a private tutor, travelling from one student's house to another. I'm also a company director. My business partner and I have just formed it so it's new and there is a lot of work to be done.
As you can imagine my life is stressful, and it's never going to not be stressful. I have read that people with stressful lives tend to have worse control.
I'm so sick of the judgement people put on you when you are a bad diabetic that I stopped caring. I wasn't able to control my sugars, and people kept saying 'but you must.' But I am a workaholic and so I won't ever be in a not hectic job. So I gave up. Diabetes burnout I think they call it.
Now my husband and I want to try for a baby. (As if I'm not busy enough ha ha ha). So I have to get the sugars under control. And I'm still struggling.
Before I gave up I was testing 8 to 10 times a day and still not able to control them.
And people think is so easy to control :(
Anyway, just looking for moral support and genuine advice that doesn't consist of me quitting my job that I love doing, locking myself in a dark room and staying away from all things stress.
