I'm looking for some help/input... I've been a type 1 diabetic for a lil over 18yrs and since last year I've been having that 'burnout / depression ' diabetes problem. I don't know how I can get out of it or what I can do.

Hi there and sorry it took me so long to answer you. I don't pop in here that often any more. Yup! T1 can be just sooooo much work. And I've also found, over the years, that you also end up getting abuse because once you are an adult, people think you are a T2 and wonder what you "did" to get it. Sigh.

While the T2 community here is great, Diabetes Daily has a huge number of type 1s and you can get some help. Very supportive. If I were you, I would also post here at WebMd on the "regular" diabetes board . There are a number of insulin users who can also help.

In the meantime, is there anything in particular I can help with or are you just feeling generally bad and not knowing where to start?
