Tell your story as to why you want to become a Diabetic Angel or start your own chapter of the Diabetic Angels and maybe your story will be featured!
I became diabetic April 1st 2008 it has been a tough road to where i am today i have learned to take better care of myself i want people to understand diabetes and realize how big the problem is people should feel comfortable. The realization of taking shots everyday doesnt hit you util your faced with the option. For me it was life or death. i ended up with a glucose level of 700 and was hospitalized for a week. There was a lot of emotions and misunderstanding especially for my mom. We will go shopping and i will get hypoglycemic and she starts to cry.i wish she wouldn't worry so much and im sure other parents experience the same feelings It was very hard to adjust to i just want to help others. i feel better than i ever have before in my entire life now that i have inslulin. i have very supportive friends and its nice to have support.

hi Rachel, I was diagnosed type 1, 5 weeks ago. So it's all new to me and my family. We are coping well, i suppose, still having hypo's every second day, soon i'll get things right. I'm still adjusting to the food changes, i'm not over weight and i can't stop eating. I've started a bit of a diary on my facebook page, look me up some time. I'm surfing the net looking for all the information i can on diabetes. Trying to get my head aroud it, but some things you read scares the shit out of you. Anyway it's great to have you as a friend. Keep in touch and i'll talk soon. Rick.
