I am 27 years old, but feel like I am living the life of a 90 year old. I am sick all the time, and in the hospital every month. I have been dating a guy for 2 and a hlaf years. He has been by my side and helping me fight this battle. I never expected anyone so young to understand and want to have me as a girlfriend. i have tried to push him away but he could see right through me and has stuck it out with me. Now he is starting his own business and has become really busy, extremely busy and is overwhelmed himself. I dont think he can handle my illness any longer. He broke up with me the other day and i am a mess. I cant stop crying, i cant eat, drink, sleep. i want so badly to be healthy and I am trying everything I can, but diabetes beats me everytime. i am just discouraged at this point that things will not get better. the future is terrifying me. They say diabetes is the silent killer, that it doesnt bother you now but later in life will get you. Well the hell it doesnt. It has taken over my life for the last 14 years. I am ready to beat this beast. im stepping up to the plate and swinging full force. I am going to take it down one day at a time. I put my faith in God and help from family and friends. I have to admit that I need help for the first time in my life. I love this website where i can talk to people who understand these thoughts and feelings. I just need a friend.
