I’ve recently joined this site again (I used to be on it when I was little) but I’ve had diabetes for 14 years and I’m currently in my second semester at college. My first semester wasn’t the best. My professors weren’t very understanding even with my accomodations and my blood sugars have been all over the place ever since I got here. I don’t really like where I’m attending school either so I definitely think that effects me even more.
I also think it’s been really difficult trying to meet new people/make new friends who don’t really understand my situation. I guess I’m not super big on change. I grew up in a place where people knew me and they knew that I had diabetes and they were always very supportive and understanding. And now I’m at a new place where my “friends” don’t quiet understand the things we go through everyday/night no matter how many times I have tried to explain it to them.
So, I guess I was just wondering if anyone out there was having the same type of problem? Or how anyone thinks I should approach my friends in a different way?
