I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in April. I was put into the hospital with keto acidosis. . My blood sugar was 388 going into the ICU. Now I am on lantus and humalog. I am 23 years old with depression and anxiety too. I have an amazing family but dealing with this is very hard. I graduated from college but barely. I missed two or three weeks of classes and fell behind in my senior seminar class and took an F in my other class. I also was doing an internship at the state capital and was not able to complete it. I will not get my diploma until I finish my paper. Before being diagnosed, I had every single symptom. I had lost 45 pounds during the last 8 months. Dry mouth and excessive water drinking was also a problem. I also had two major infections.
I wanted to connect with other young people who also have type one. So that is my story!
