Hello, I have been responding to a few posts and did not introduce myself. I am an artist living in San Francisco. Was misdiagnosed as Type II in beginning of 2007 and finally last year fired my doctor and got a whole new team. Was diagnosed Type 1 immediately. They are incredible. I have gotten so much better and was doing so well that I didn't really recognize how difficult this illness is. I was so happy to finally have a good doctor and went to charb counting, classes, read books, meetings and was on a pump in no time marveling at technology before I had any real problems. I kept telling everyone I was fine. I am not sure I am fine. I am having a post diagnosis kind of sadness. I check my numbers minimum 10 times a day, I carry way too many juice boxes and don't exercise as much as I used to because I go too low sometimes and too high other times. I feel I can't complain as it has been such a short time compared to people who have lived with it for all of their lives. I don't know any adult Diabetics.
Does anyone ever feel like you are constantly saying your 'e fine when you just might not be so great.?
