Hi! I'm type one. I was diagnosed around 3 1/2 years ago. I started out on a role during my first 2 years. I'm a teenager and I was wondering if anyone has any motivtion ideas? I try reay hard, but just lost a lot of passion for diabetes you know? Ideas?
I like to find other activities. If I'm busy doing other stuff that I like, I tend to get pretty focused on diabetes, so it doesn't get in the way of the other stuff.
Do you have any friends that are diabetic? I find that sharing expiriances with fellow diabetics can help keep things fresh. I have a friend who will occasionally shoot me a text “record high:( " or " don’t you love a painless pump site”. I reciprocate with texts “Chinese tonight, it’s gonna be a disaster” or “went sking yesterday, bg was good whole day”. This kinda acts as a mini support group that doesn’t get in the way much. It also keeps things in focus and reminds you, your not alone.
Good luck!!! And props to you for reaching out to the online community.
