I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes when I was in 7th grade and was devastated. Now I'm a senior in high school, 18 years old and am still pretty bummed that I have it. I don't really like to tell anybody that I have it because I'm embarrassed that I have it. I kind of don't take care of my diabetes because I don't like to inject myself with insulin and don't like carb counting. And I hate going to to the doctor's because he gets mad at me a lot. I don't really have anyone to talk to either because no one I know has diabetes. Any help/support would help. Thank you. (:
