i was diagnosed shortly after i turned 13 in may so i only had 8 months of my teen freedom...now im about to turn 16 in september but one problem leads to another....every since my 3rd a1c check i have had nonstop 11-12.4 ...but my bllodsugar hardly ever goes over 280..(still bad i no) but never below 200 but its gotten to the point im needing 30 or so units of novalog till i go to 90... Even so i have doctors , teachers (dont get me started on them) my own family amd frienss!! telling me "oh i no what your going through..my sis or my aunt, cousin, uncle ,father or whoever has it..NO DONT HAVE THE SLIGHTEST FREAKING CLUE!!!! do i need to poke ur fingers 6 times a day or give 5 or more shots a day for it to sink in!!! instead of saying you no what im dealing with... im tired of crying at night..feeling alone and like a freak around everyone...and yes ive had people ask me if its contaigous....then theres the sub. who tried to give me a write up for needing the nurse since i blacked out with 489 im tired of getting the blame and being accused when i have the bruised arms, stomach and legs to prove it.
