      I personally write out my feelings and post them on a private Snapchat story for my close friends to see, it doesn’t matter to me if they read it or not, it’s mostly for me to de stress and get it off my chest

      That's good, as long as you've found something to help you

      Tbh I'm not sure what I do anymore. I've had it since I was 3 which would be make this my 17 or 18th year having it. And up until now I just rolled with the flow. Then now I'm starting to realize how it's affecting my life. It's really hard and up until last year I've never broken down like I have last year. What makes it tough for me is that even my closest friends can't really understand or sympathize because they don't get how it feels, but im not mad at them or anything though. It's just hard when you don't have someone with similar feelings about what's going on. As for how I've dealt with it. Idk. The most I can do is play video games and be with my dog because it's even affected my social life in terms of meeting new people and Dating.

      It’s natural to have these thoughts, I think knowing that the why ultimately won’t help or change anything is helpful. I don’t personally feel everyday is something new with t1D because I’ve gotten so used to it and I know my body really well. But I do sometimes feel overwhelmed by it’s constant presence and I have wondered why me or thought “it’s not fair”. I have learned to view t1D as a positive thing in some ways. I personally think I’m wiser/ smarter because I have it. And it gives me a better understanding of health issues/ disabilities in general. It helps me be more respectful and aware. If I could go back and choose to not get type 1, I wouldn’t.
