I'm frustrated I have had type one diabetes for almost nine years. I am currently working on getting an insulin pump. I am sick of the shots, sick of the pain my lantus shot gives me. Sick of checking my blood sugars several times a day. Sick of shots to lower my blood sugar. Sick of shots for carbs. Sick of high a1cs. Sick of it all. I have mental problems to deal with too. Which makes it that much more difficult to take care of. I cry a lot in frustration. My fiance does not understand how hard this really is. I know I can't stop taking care of this disease and my mental diseases but I can't do this. I don't even get enough food stamps to last the month. I can't get a job because of my mental disabilities. Social security doesn't give me enough to take care of everything I need. I just want to give up. But I know I can't. Please somebody give me advice or tell me if this will get easier.
