Newly Diagnosed

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April.  I was put into the hospital with keto acidosis.  .  My blood sugar was 388 going into the ICU.  Now I am on lantus and humalog.  I am 23 years old with depression and anxiety too.  I have an amazing family but dealing with this is very hard.  I graduated from college but barely.  I missed two or three weeks of classes and fell behind in my senior seminar class. I will not get my diploma until I finish my paper.  Before being diagnosed, I had every single symptom.  I had lost 45 pounds during the last 8 months.  Dry mouth and excessive water drinking was also a problem.  I also had two major infections. 

I wanted to connect with other young people who also have type one.  So that is my story!
