Diabetes Type 1 Support Group

Childhood","Childhood diabetes is when the pancreas in a child does not produce enough insulin on its own. In order to survive, insulin injections need to be incorporated as well as diet regulation. If your child is diagnosed with diabetes, find support and share your experiences here. Caring for a child with diabetes is challenging. We're here for you."

    Struggling with Type 1 Diabetes for 16 years.

    1
    Hello Everyone,I have been diabetic for 16 years which I was diagnosed when I was 12 years old. I am now 28 years old and it never gets any easier for me especially with weight loss.

    Frustrated with Diabetes

    2
    I have been diagnosed with T1D since Dec 2015 - So it’s been about 15 months now and I am more lost in anger and depression than ever. People who are not in the trenches of diabetes do not understand - they simply don't. Words cannot explain the frustration. Not understanding how "you need to eat health and take care of yourself" doesn't really feel like love when you hear it from everyone who...

Really huge special shout out to Tawnee and AtPeaceMary. Thanks so much to you two for the push I needed to test my blood- I forgot the feeling of knowing just what and why I feel the way I do. Actually, it's surprising that when I...

    My boyfriend is driving me crazy. He acts like my diabetes is a huge inconvenience for HIM. I have to give my Lantus at the same time every night. He goes to bed so I switched my dose time from 11 to 10. Now he's going to bed at 9:30 and complaining that I wake him up when I get into bed after 10.I have to give my insulin and take my pills at a consistent time. But he doesn't care. He doesn't get...

    my father has had diabetes for the past 22 years and throughout the years it has made his health worse. His vision, kidneys, feet, etc. it breaks my heart to see him being so sick. For about a month his blood sugars have dropped way too often. It's becoming too regular. Sometimes it's so low to the point where he starts having seizures, other times he loses consciousness and starts talking...

    Worried About My Daughter

    1
    Hi! I'm a new user, and I see that this group may not be especially active lately, but I'll give it a shot. I am worried about my 24-year-old daughter. She was diagnosed with Type 1 when she was 8, and as you all know, it's been hard - especially for her. She is now living far away, but she visited for about two months recently. While she was here, I began to suspect (with good reason) an eating...
