What has been getting at me lately is the feeling of spending (almost) my entire life with diabetes and still feeling so totally lost with it sometimes.

You'd think I would be a pro by now - and that is sad too.

It is good reading this knowing that I am not alone in feeling the way I do at times. Thanks.

Yes...continues to surprise. This normal(15 years for me, 9 years for my daughter) feels far from "home" and it is.

I feel very alone with this disease. I have never even met another diabetic. I definately do not feel normal. The worst is going hypo and needing help. The last time that happened (at work), when it was over, I ran out of the office and cried. I was so embarrassed. I sure miss being normal.:(

I haven't been a t1 for very long (diagnosed in May at age 24) so I can't really comment on what it's like to spend years with diabetes, but I really know that feeling of surprise. "Holy cow, diabetes!" is a thought I have at least once a day.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm new to your blog and really like your writing style. I'll definitely stick around, although I'm a bit of a lurker.
