Hi Avery, for more support google "diabetes online community" it can really help with the emotional part of type one. Also the " you can do this project" on you tube. Good luck.

It is a freak out. I was half way through my senior year in high school and in the best physical shape a person could be in or close. I lost about 30lbs over 3 to 4 months and I was working a part time job and going to high school and playing sports. My vision got so blurry I could hardly read a street sign. I was thirsty like crazy. I was hungry like crazy. I was eating and drinking all I could. And still starving to death. Insulin is a miracle. Your on it now. You got this girl.

I clocked every time I had to urinate because my kidneys were trying to get rid of sugar. It was every 5 minutes the day before I went in hospital and got on insulin.

That was late 1979. You got this with way more medical technology and better insulin than I had then. You will have a wonderful life. Your innocence is precious. Your future is bright.
