where people touched by diabetes help each other.
I've had great days and really bad days.I'm tired of the ups and downs. It would be nice to just have great days filled with smiles and energy. Never want to give up but being diabetic is just not fun
Hi there, I know how u feel. Can I ask are the downs due to erratic sugar levels if so I recommend a pump for much tighter control and I've heard endless energy from being in control of sugars
I prey for energy but half my jabs are correctional doses and high sugars make me lethargic and stuck to the seat with lack of energy
It can be better I know it's a nightmare so many things put sugars up so many things bring it down and it's a constant juggle to keep it in the middle I find it impossible and my sugars bounce.
You're not alone and don't have to suffer in silence
Thank you**** I'm going to talk about the pump today. Crossing fingers
****I had a lot of up and down sugars and never had the energy. I've been on the pump for about two months. I'm starting to get my life back. Good luck!
