where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Has anyone else had a slippery slope with their control? How do I keep on the right path?

One bad day does not take you off your path. You just have to think about why you want to be as healthy as possible. We all have a tough day now and then.

if it was only one day if be ok with that, when I lose control it's for months on end. I'm worried I will fail again.

I only operate one day at a time. If I dwell on my bad days, I would never do better. I have been a type 1 for 33 years. I have had a lot of bad days. I can't go back and fix the past-go forward and try to treat yourself better. I know it is hard to have to watch everything we eat.

most important that was said is taking one day at a time, I find a positive attitude towards everything makes all the difference. Diabetes can undoubtably be unpredictable . Keep pushing forward👊
