hello everyone. I have type 1 diabetes obviously. I have been struggling with it for now a year and half. been really hard since getting a new diagnosis of hypothyroidism and having a thyroid medication and my doctors won't listen. and I have been sick and then my sugars have been all over the place. I had them really decently controlled but they would still spike or try to go low but not too bad. but now I can't get them under control. I am starting to feel like a failure. and I don't even want to eat because of it. any advice or encouragement would help. thank you so much

      Britster i got diagnosed in May last year, and so its been a struggle. So I have had good months and then lately it feels like I can't catch a break and I just want to cry.

      I got diagnosed in June last year. And I’ve been so worn out! We all do our best and that is all we can do. Things like our blood sugar will never be perfect, so we shouldn’t be stressing out about the days we can’t seem to catch a break. We all know our bodies better than anyone else.

      I use a massage chair and it works sometimes. I don't usually go to dka until it hits 500. But I do have doctors appointment on Wednesday to see what is going on because I do know something is going on. But I just try and try and it feels like nothing is working and I have nothing to show. And I can't tell you how many times I have been exposed to covid. And im sure I have had but didn't get tested because where I live they don't help you get better so your just a part of a statistic and I didn't want to be that and I just tried my best to use what I had at home and quarantine myself.

      WauLeah thank you so much that really helps. Its been a tough day and weeks. And I don't understand how to keep going when it just keeps knocking me down. And I have other issues then just diabetes. I am getting help for them. And I know its just a temporary issue right and im sure I will get my sugars back in check like I did. But my hope is going down right now.
