Madison, I posted this as it's own discussion to be sure you would see it, and others, so they can chime in.
I just wanted to tell you how well you're doing adjusting to the lifetime changes you're dealing with diagnosed with T1 diabetes. It's tough for anyone -- that much more so when you're 14 going on 15!
And in a foreign country too...
I'm a 52 year old father of two, daughter 16 son 18. I'm working through all the teen stuff with them, and it's hard growing up. I've been following your story, and must say that you fill me with joy and pride at how well you're dealing with all this.
Hang in there, and keep steady where you're going. You're doing well. We are all so glad you found us, and joined our community!
