I seem to be cyclical when it comes to my diabetes control. I've had Type 1 for 17 years, and I know the drills. But sometimes, I just get overwhelmed by it and how it fits into my daily schedule. Basically, my parents kept me in control throughout high school, and then I was on my own in college. Now in graduate school, I'm on a rollercoaster. There are times where my control is great, and then I start to loosen my control, and then I tighten my control. On and off, on and off. I suppose I'm the type of person that lets things get to me (ie, my thesis work, family issues, etc), and that makes me distracted/not willing to take care of my diabetes.
Does anyone have any suggestions on maintaining steady control or hints on how to stick with it??
