are you getting highs or lows? or both. Since you are so freshly diagnosed I'd say that it's just that your (how do I say this in english, I'm sorry if this sounds weird) insulin amounts that you take are still a bit off, it really takes time to adjust your insulin so that your sugar acts more like it would with "normal" person.. (sorry for the choice of words). Anyway, since you are now diagnosed, it will only get better from here. Atleast you don't haveto worry about "what's wrong?" and with diabetes you can actually live quite normally like you have before :) and it's not the end of the world. There will always be highs and lows, I have both every week and it's perfectly normal :) just one more thing and then I'll go and be a pain in someone elses butt, don't let the diabetes take over your life, you should take over your diabetes ;). I think of it as sort of ..hmm a hobby like thing of sort. I was diagnosed 5 years ago (and it still irritates me at times but thats life I guess.) Whooops, gotta go! my people need me ;) chiao!
