I just got diagnosed on February 15th, the day after Valentines! I couldn't believe that I had a label in my life, "type 1 diabetes." I assumed I had eaten too many cupcakes the day before, but the doctor reassured me I definitely did have diabetes. So now, I just take the daily insulin injections and constant glucose checks. It's been hard, but not because of the treatment, more of the frustration of the numbers. My target in the day is 120, and 150 at night. When they are higher, I'm having anxiety because of the long term complications that could happen. So how does one deal with the anxiety of Type 1 diabetes?
