I am a 24 year old Type 1 diabetic. Lately my control has been less than stellar. I have been experiencing some things and wanted to see if anyone else out there has had similar experiences:
1. Often times when I go outside on a sunny, or even somewhat sunny day, my eyes take FOREVER to adjust and it is very difficult for me to see
2. I experience severe lower back pain, like it feels like I got hit by a car. Heating pads and massages do nothing to alleviate the pain
3. Humidity makes my sugars plummet. It takes a lot of work to keep my numbers up when it's humid outside
I'm new to the whole diabetic community and wanted to ask a question. When I get upset and cry my blood sugars sky rocket. I'm talking into the 300s. Now, this can't be a true reading, because I haven't ingested any food, but should I still treat this reading as a true 'high' blood sugar?
I'm looking for friends close to me in age who may have similar stories to share, or who may have been off-track with their diabetes care and found their way back to health.
