Don't worry Avery! When your blood sugar hit is normal, you will learn how manage everything about diabetes , you will see it's not as terrible as you may heard! Be strong, I'm type 1 for a year and I know how you feel! And don't forget that everything bad you may heard about diabetes don't have to be true, there's a lot of stupid false pieces of information about diabetes. And above all, keep seeing positive stuffs and smile :)

If you are over 18 you can ask the Dr at the Hospital to give you AFREZZA the new inhaled insulin. It will bring down your BG faster than anything. I have been on it for 4 months for T2. My son is T1 and he has been on it for 3 months. Mealtime only. Good luck. Look it up on YouTube.
