The worst thing about diabetes
Ilayne posted:
I just came home from my first appt. with a psychiatrist. She recommended I join a support group. The worst thing about diabetes is my emotional health. I am an emotional train wreck. When I am not crying, I am raging at someone. I have sudden onset type I diabetes.

Type 1 can be a pain in the butt - literally as well as figuratively. But once you get your basals and ratios worked out, things will get better. Don't forget, diabetes will not stop you from achieving your goals. Feel free to ask lots of questions.
