Hello everyone, I could really use some advice and tips on how to navigate the real world with type one!
I am 22 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 in March (2020) days before my state started to quarantine due to Covid-19. Since March I have only been out and about to go to the store and doctors appointments so I have not exactly experienced living with Type 1 beyond the comfort of my home and a parked car, or the passenger seat, where I’ve learned to test my blood sugar on outings. That being said, I am a commuter college student and will be attending some of my classes on campus in the fall, and do not know how I am supposed to check my blood sugar in public or where to go so I do not shock anyone around me. As far as injections, I am still honeymooning so I only do one basal injection a day, but I know the days of dosing beyond my basal are approaching and do not know how to navigate that on campus or in public either.
Any tips, advice, or tricks on how to take care of yourself with type one in public would be super helpful! Thank you!
