Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes is not an easy task. More of a chore. It takes time to get used to the daily questions and concerns for your health. Sometimes it may get irritating. However, being diagnosed with T1D is manageable. It’s not something you need to think about every second of your life. After first being diagnosed, it’s okay to be scared and concerned, I know I was. Whether going to school or going to hockey practice, I was worried that I might cause a scene after going low. Although it isn’t easy, you have to accept this, and once you do, you won’t have to worry about going low or anything like that because you’ll have it handled.
