I have been a Type 1 for 40 years and really did not understand diabetes or carbs, or insulin to carb ratios, etc. until about 6 years ago.
The more I learn about diabetes and how it affects every cell in your body when your bgs is elevated or fluctuating between lows and highs, I sometimes feel that I liked it better when I was in the dark.
I feel with tighter control and more knowledge I worry more and this disease has become a more 24/7 burden.
Just a little vent from me.
