Anyone else suffering from habits of restricting insulin for weight loss reasons? It's become like an addiction and I can't stop. My a1c is out of control

?!?!?? Don't do that. I know it seems like a good idea but trust me it just feels awful in the long run.

Saying don't do that isn't that easy.. It's a medical diabetic eating disorder called diabulimia.

I had my retina detach, lost most of the feeling in both of my feet, caused problems in my relationships because we are much angrier when we run high, the eventually coded December of ####!

This is my 13th year. I've only started taking control a few months back now. My problem was not to lose weight. I just thought I was invincible and am learning the hard way I'm not xx

I'm terrified that if I start taking control I will gain weight
