I have had type 1 for 5 years, got it after my second child was born.....pretty much been on my own after the doctors told me you will have this diabetes and here is some insulin good luck to you. 

Sugars are like an orchestra always.  I wear an insulin pump WITHOUT the sensor.  Finding I might have to go to this thing even though I don't want to as it is just another thing to deal with.  I never feel good and have lots of other health issues.  This disease puts a financial burden on my family and even though there is new health care choices available it is still too expensive for us.

I need to find other women who have type 1 and help me to find ways not to let this disesase control me but for me to control it.  Please let me know as I am new to this site and don't have alot of time having small children to come on here alot but I have to find some support quick! 

Over the weekend my pump was having trouble and sugars were over 600 and could barely walk.  My husband doesn't get this disease and is not happy the house is a mess and I can't remember much let alone do much.  Sugars drop cleaning the house, doing dishes and other things.  Even if I am really happy they drop!  I am truly a brittle diabetic.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi, I'm Lizzi and I have had diabetes for 17 years.  I don't have children so I don't know exactly what you are going through but I do know what it feels like to be on the blood sugar roller coaster.  When I was first diagnosed (when I was 7) my doctor pounded into my head that I needed to write down and track everything.  From when and what my blood sugar was to what I had eaten for every meal and snack every single day.  I didn't really understand why all of those stupid numbers were important but now I get it.  The more you write down, the easier it is to find patterns.  I understand that you don't have a lot of time seeing as you have little ones running around but I promise it will help.  There are apps for both iPhone and Android that allow you to add each blood sugar with or without a note of what you ate or what insulin dose you did.  And most of the apps allow you to export the data onto your computer so you can print it out.  If you rather not use an app just piece of paper and a pen in your blood sugar kit helps.  It's hard to go back and try to add all blood sugars but if you start today you would be able to see patterns in about a week.  I am more than willing to help any time if you need it.  I am curious if you are seeing an Endocrinologist or an Internist now that you are diabetic.  Let me know.  And good luck!!!
