Good Morning T1D community,
Last year around this time I suffered from an extreme low of 30 something. I was very frightened because it would not come up, my husband has always sat up with me and I was in such a panic I told him we might have to call an ambulance. I wasn’t sure if I was more anxious because we were out of town so I was not in the comfort of my own home. My problem now is that is scared me so much, I am terrified of insulin. I do not dose correctly and suffer from high blood sugars. I was telling my doc yesterday that when I put my carbs and glucose I just can’t hit enter. I freeze and get an anxious feeling, so I lower by dose. I know I cannot go on like this for much longer because I am starting to get frustrated with my highs. I am an avid exerciser and I eat fairly well. I just cannot get my sugars under control.
I do not know anyone around my area to talk to. I have my husband but I do not think he can fully understand my fear. I hope I can figure this out soon, I have 3 kids that I want to be around for for a long time. I guess I just need some reassurance or advice on how to move past my anxiety and fear of insulin.
