I am at a point in my life where I really don't know where to turn. I just want to kind of express some of my concerns here and see if anyone had any advice for me. I am in an extremely stressful job. But I like my job and it does allow me time to be with my child. But there are days I hardly ever have time to check, much less control my blood sugars. On a daily basis I have blood sugar readings in the 300s and 400s. I have not been watching what I eat for years now. I honestly don't have time. There are no other diabetics I spend time with so I don't think those in my life realize how time consuming this illness is. My main concern in that I am going to die. I have gained a lot of weight (about 30 pounds in the past year or so). I don't have time to make healthy food choices. I have a few family issues (don't we all?). My little buddy, my rat in this profile pic had to be put to sleep this week due to an inoperable tumor that had formed in her stomach. I know its crazy but I have taken her death really hard. I know she was just a rat but she was my buddy. I don't really have close friendships. I am introverted. And sometimes I am just depressed and I am not sure if it is because of my illness that I feel this way. I am type 1. I was diagnosed in 2005 at the age of 25. Honestly I just don't want to be diabetic anymore. Is that an option? LOL. There is much more craziness going on. But please don't get me wrong I have many wonderful things in my life. I am very blessed. I am just tired of not feeling well. I'm sorry I needed to vent a little. Thanks for listening.
