I'm kinda having a hard time. I just got my HBA1C test result and it has gone up from 7.4 to 8.5. It was six months between tests. I have type 1 diabetes and about a year or so ago I was on the wrong dosage of Lantus (long lasting) This would send me into lows at random points in the day and night. It basically made me lose all confidence in my insulin. I began having crazy anxiety attacks. Those praise God, have for the most part gone away because I saw another doctor and had the dosage changed and saw a therapist who basically affirmed that my anxiety was understandable and gave me some techniques to calm myself. I am still affected by the past, as I get scared to take insulin when I see a good number below 100 mg/dL. It so hard to explain. Has any one else ever gone through this? I was hoping by coming on here I would face some of my fears and be encouraged. I can't help but freak out when I read about other peoples lows or scary moments. I haven't had a low in a long time..mainly because I try to keep myself from going under 150 mg/dL. A number for some reason I consider safe. Is there anyone out there who's gone through something similar? What did you do to get beyond it?
