My name is Sicile and I have T1D. I am 18 years old and have had diabetes for 8 years. None of my family or friends have T1D, I have searched for groups and other locals that might have it but i can’t seem to find anyone around considering I live in a small town. In the last year or so I have been having a hard time with my doctors and parents, trying to give me advice and control my T1D. I feel as if no one really gets it, and I do not want anyone to feel sorry for me. All I have wanted is someone to talk to, about how it get frustrating some nights, or how it gets tiering after so long. I am getting burnt out, I am sick of needles, I am tired of not sleeping through the night because my blood sugar has gotten low or high, and so on. Tonight was a bit rough so I came looking for people who understand.
