      It's a pain having neuropathy so young and even worse when you get the random pains. I also wish everyday to just exchange this body with a normal, non diabetic one. I could do do much more with it...

      ❤️ this post hits so hard because it's the same for me. I've been since I was 13, 33 now (34 in November) and honestly even when I was on the pump when I had insurance, it was checking my sugars that was always a problem. CGMs Jane only just started to become more mainstream and id love to use one, but I'm not entirely sure if my Medicaid coverage will allow it... I already have neuropathy and I've had issues with my eyes (but not to the point of diagnosing retinopathy) so I just am freaking out even though I know that these issues I have are entirely because of my issues with not taking proper care of my diabetes...

      For me the best thing that helped me get it together in terms of my diabetes care was improved technology. I always struggled so much to maintain good carb counting and blood sugar monitoring because I would get burned out by the constant effort. It's a lot easier for me now that I have an insulin pump that communicates with a cgm and makes dosing decisions for me based on sugar levels. I don't know if this is helpful info or not, depending on whether you are able to access that technology / are already using it

        @PineMarten i am definitely going to look into getting the pump because nothing else seems to be helping or getting me controlled
