    What treatment are you on? Apidra Insulin
    Do you feel it is working good? Yes
    Is there something you would think would be a better treatment? Only a cure, of course!!!
    How do you feel when you are low or high? High-Really Tired,

    Low-Shaky and i can't concentrate on anything.
    Do you feel Diabetes runs your life?
    No. I actually think that diabetes has helped me because now i know how to cope with things, i can tell who my really good friends are (the ones that look out for me when i am high or low), and i have an easier time solving problems in life.

    Sorry for hijack, but,
    for all the people who keep asking how I can forget when I was diagnosed- I'm mentally insane (Not really). I just don't think of it as an important day. Or year, so, I can't really remember.

    I assume this is no longer needed, but I'll fill it out anyway:

    Age when diagnosed with Diabetes? 17
    What treatment are you on? Lantus and Novolog, Accu-Chek aviva checks
    Do you feel it is working good? Good but not great.
    Is there something you would think would be a better treatment? I'm adding in a CGMS as of next week.
    How do you feel when you are low or high? Tired. A sort of inner tremble when I'm low, and lately an aftertaste tingle in my mouth after I'm low.
    Do you feel Diabetes runs your life? Maybe, like being a student runs your life. It doesn't run my life more than various other things.
