Oh how I relate! I would love to talk to you more in depth. But briefly , I had crappy control for years but I got by. Until boom! The gauntlet dropped! Last year when I was 28 I had a huge blob appear in my left eye.. It was a retnal hemmhorage. 3 months later I was told I had kidney disease. It sucks man! I am only 29 , but when ppl try to scare us into taking better care of ourselves it doesn't always work. Like I said, I would really like to talk to u more in depth. It would be good for both of us. Please look me up on Facebook Courtney alesich . Ttyl View Thread
Hi there, I have been type 1 for 21 years. I am 29 yrs old, female. After years of not having good bs control I am now facing the consequences. I have numerous diabetes complications, one of the most challenging being gastroparesis. I have a very supportive husband, although he is currently deployed. I have so many blessings in my life and I choose to focus on them. One being I have health insurance( good insurance too) We all know what a relief that is. But I find myself being depressed and moody alot of the time(esp with my hubby). I just really need to talk to someone in my similar situation. Like most type 1 , you would never think by looking at me that i have all the health issues I do. I am not into having a pity party , I just need someone to relate to......View Thread
