where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Anyone ever just have a random breakdown and ask yourself 'why me?'

Ye I get this all the time, diabetes is the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with but I guess we have to but I was always saying why me why does this have to ruin my life why not somebody else

I'm the same :( and then when someone says 'oh so you can't eat sweets or sugar' and I'm just like.. Please go away !! Haha it's horrible, it makes you feel like you have lost control of your own body!

At first I was fine with my diabetes but now I feel I can't do anything because I worry about it all the time, I completely understand and I find it hard as a teen as I feel I miss out on so much x

It's comforting to know I'm not the only one :) but it's horrible that we have to worry about so much at a young age, but realistically we could be worse off and have some other terrible disease

Aw ino how you feel, trust me it gets better as you get older because your friends mature and are much more aware of your diabetes. Plus you will learn that it's not a disease it's a part of you.

Thank you, I really hope it gets better, I do always try to remember there is always someone who has to go through worse than me x

Plus you will realise that you can do everything your friends do and you won't miss out on much. You learn how to manage your diabetes and handle it better by trying new things and being adventurous :)
