Hi I'm a 18 (soon to be 19) year old type 1 diabetic. I have had diabetes since I was 23 months old. I am at the point now where I really just don't care anymore. I know I need to check and give insulin but what's the point? I've been struggling with this issue for about three years and it really hit hard my senior year (I'm a freshman in college now). I saw a counselor all thru last year but to no avail. I just feel like there is nothing left to help make my life easier with living with diabetes. I have an extreme allergy to medical adhesive so insulin pumps and CGMs are out of the question. I've tried symilan too but it totally screws up my stomach. So my main question is what the hell do I do? What can I do to help light a fire under my ass to better take care of myself? I've tried everything in the book and nothing works so please don't give me textbook answers. My next appointment is Tuesday so we'll see what my doctor says but I could really use some help.
