Well , I had to start my last year of middle school with Type 1 Diabetes .
I hate it .
The part I hate most is knowing that I will never escape from it .
But anyways , since I was just diagnosed in August 09 , I still have a hard time accepting that I actually have a chronic disease and alot of times I get embarassed .
People ask me alot what it's like having diabetes . I can't really explain it to them , and they wouldnt understand .
You can't understand unless you actually have felt having low blood sugar or high blood sugar .
I feel like sometimes im alone with it , even though this site has proved there are TONS of other people with it .
I just hate answering questions about it . Alot of people at school are curious , and i feel like the teachers feel bad for me .
I dont want sympathy from thm .
People ask me all the time " did you get if from eating to much sugar ? " NO NO NO NO NO i didnt !!
I HATE that . I always feel like somehow its my fault i got this althought i know it isnt.
I just wish people could stop asking me dumb questions . . .
But since im only in 8th grade i dont know what its like in highschool .. how is it ? does it get better or are people still as dumb ?
Also , next year do you think i will have to go to the nurse before and after lunch still like i do this year ?
Thanks , and if there is anyone that would like to help me and give me some tips / motivation i would appreciate it(:
