Hi. Not sure how this works… I just joined. I am Type 1 on the pump, and just started using a Continuous Glucose Monitor. I am a CRA and travel extensively. I am also very dedicated to physical exercise (road bicycling) and an overall healthy lifestyle. I became Type 1 at age 25.
I am terribly weepy the past week. I am feeling sorry for myself and angry at others who do nothing regarding healthy living, but do not have any ailments. I feel like a freak, a machine - I beep, vibrate, light up, my battery dies at inopportune times, I run out of insulin, I get sweaty and shaky and irritable (ask my husband!). I need to know others feel this way too… anyone? No one around me can sympathize and I feel very alone. After 13 years you'd think I would be cool with being diabetic, but if anything it is getting harder.
I am on the pity pot and can't get off.
