Like "I am 22 and was diagnosed with type 1 three weeks ago exact. I went in with 700s too and felt fine. My doctor got my blood tests back that morning and called me and told me to go to the ER. My life has turned upside down! I death with the excessive thirst and constant urination, blurred vision, leg cramps, and everything that was caused by high blood sugar for over two weeks before I told my doctor. Not smart! I'm still learning (and damn it's stressful) how to count carbs and use the insulin pens and manage highs and lows and everything. It's rough but "apparently" it doesn't get better but it gets easier haha. Maybe some day in our lives we can be cured and eat anything we want again ;) "
