I was diagnosed less than a month ago and these last few weeks have definitely been a roller coaster for me. I just got back to college a couple days ago and I'm still trying to figure out exactly how to manage my diabetes. It's definitely nerve wracking to be five hours away from home (both for my family and I) and still trying to get used to this new disease.
I told my communitly advisor of my dorm that I was recently diagnosed and she acted like it was no big deal. That didn't really make me feel better if something were to happen to me. Tomorrow classes start and I'm pretty nervous telling my professors about my diabetes..I'm really hoping they don't have the same response as my community advisor.
I just really needed to blow off some steam, it's been a rough day.
