it's okay to feel sad, angry, and overwhelmed about having to take care of diabetes. it feels like your family doesn't understand because they don't live with diabetes. while they have never been where you are, they can empathize with you because they know you and see you struggle.
it's very hard to concentrate on diabetes, especially in your teenage/high school years, because you have so many other things going on. your attention is being pulled in every direction and the stress of trying to handle diabetes at the same time seems like too much at times. i was there, i understand how you are feeling.
be very honest with your parents, family, and friends. tell them exactly how you feel and why you think you struggle with it. when you try to hide your feelings and put on a strong face, it makes your struggle feel even more overwhelming. when you share your feelings with others it lets you relieve yourself of some of the burden. a support system is very important.
