"Can I Get Some Help Please?"

I feel like I don't get a lot of support from my family and my friends don't really see how important type 1 diabetes is. So for those of you out there that have ever tried to go through type 1 diabetes by themselves, can you please give me some tips on how to get some support from fam and friends? Thanks!

What I would do is sit down with your family and friends and talk to them. Tell them that you need and want support from them. Tell them that you dont want them to be the diabetic "police" but you know an question from time to time asking how your doing and what not would be helpful. Also check back here often for help and any questions that you have can be answered here, I have used this site forhelp and am thankful for all the work that everyone has put into this site and for everyone that uses it!
