Does mental health other medical conditions impact your ability to take care of your diabetes? Are there any other druggie diabetics out there? I can’t seem to get my T1D under control or my other illnesses, despite being diabetic since age 5 (I’m 19 now). I’m not addicted to anything but nicotine but sometimes (especially with bipolar mania or depression) I can’t keep myself from doing drugs to escape my current reality, which scares me as a diabetic.

      Recovering heroin addict, T1D with ADHD and other mental health problems. I don’t have many tips, but know you’re not alone. If you can set alarms for your blood sugar and insulin, it will help you remember when you are in a more dazed state.
