Hey there, I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed and pretty angry at my body right now. I've been diagnosed with this adult onset type 1 diabetes for about 5 months now, and I've gone through the initial burst of enthusiasm to work this whole thing out, and now I'm in the angry denial stage.

I haven't got my sugars under control properly yet, and I've avoided testing them for 2 weeks now because it was so frustrating. I think they are high because I've been feeling sick again like I did before I was diagnosed. I;m taking my insulin, but have avoided my endocronologist for 3 weeks because he wants to put me on the basal bolus (sp) regime and it really scares me, the thought of more injections.

I'm a 34 year old woman, a mother, and I know I have to get healthy and in control of this, but right now, i'm sitting here crying because it all feels too much. The last straw was (oh the shame and indignation) was wetting my bed last night. I googled night wetting and realised that it must be linked to my diabetes, and this has just made me so upset.

I'm really sorry to introduce myself like this, but i really hope that I can find some encouragement and help here, because I think I really need it. It's midnight here in Oz, so I may not post anymore tonight, but I would really love to know if this kind of denial and anger is normal!
