Hey everyone,
you don’t need to read this because I’m just venting. Sorry in advance…
So, recently, I’ve realized that I can’t focus on one thing and stick with it longer than a month. So I’m not particularly good at anything. And I’ve found no motivation to do school work or just any work at all. I don’t even understand what the point of living is. What is the reason of living? I’m not trying to sound suicidal, I just do not understand. On top of that, I’ve been having a ton of friendship problems lately. I’ve been trying to separate from my long time best friend who recently has become extremely pessimistic, easily angered, and mean. Two of my friends, who were best friends with each other, just got angry at each other about a week ago and haven’t really talked to each other.
One of my biggest problems is my diabetes. Because my easiest/favorite way to vent my anger is by exercise, mostly a punching bag, it is really hard for me to keep my blood sugars at the right level. If I eat before, I usually go high, but if I eat after, I go low. Which is actually what’s happening right now. I’m trying to bring my levels up since I need to sleep soon.
No one understands why I’m so stressed all the time. But, I find it hard to deal with middle school drama, diabetes, lack of motivation, and parents. My parents are always expecting me to be able to keep my blood glucose perfect 24/7 and have all A’s in school, and a ton of other crap.

Hello my name is Felicia and I am 19 years old. I’ve had diabetes for 11 years now and I know exactly what you’re going through. If you would like to talk to me I think we could motivate each other. Things do get better!

Hi warriorkit in relation to your exercise issue I used to have the same problem I would always take a break or have a bigger snack after or a smaller snack before. Also if you use a insulin pump you can take it off or set a temp basal… I don’t know about the pen or the Omni pod… anyway hope this helps!!!
