Oh, BUT there can always be more to add, Faith! Chime in! Diabetes makes us hate EVERYTHING! Jess - I feel you on the eating disorder tendencies. I have battled those for years (even before "D") and while I am as over them now as I will ever be, I still have the "must be perfect" mindset and find it easy to fall into the trap of not eating//skipping insulin to stay thin. I just tell myself that it's not worth it anymore and that my health is more important. Diabetes makes me hate knowing that I'll never completely rid myself of OCD tendencies... BECAUSE having great diabetes control requires being rather anal retentive. I obsess over what I eat all day and am constantly thinking, "should I eat this? how will it affect my sugar? will I miscalculate and then get low and have to force feed myself something sweet? Crap..." I'd just like to have one day where I don't have to worry at all about what I eat and just HAVE AT IT!
