GUYS! I’m finally going to make the Type 1 Diabetic Tumblr List

aradicalbedclerk:

I finally have a week off from uni (yaayyy) and some free time, and I’m going to set up the Type 1 Diabetic Tumblr List to attach to my blog, because having other dia-badasses to talk and connect with can make life with type 1 that little bit easier 

So, if all the Type 1 Diabetics of Tumblr could reblog this and spread the word, I’ll set it up this week. 

Hi I was just diagnosed with T1D in February and I'm going through my honey moon stage I was wondering if It gets better

Hi, having T1D is different for everyone, people have individual routines that they tend to stick to and that they know work. I found it very hard and confusing at the start, trying to settle down, making it a part of my life, so that I’m controlling it rather that it controlling me. Everyone goes through phases where it gets really hard, and you just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel (especially at the beginning) but it will get better once you get into a good rhythm, it becomes second nature.

As far as the honey moon phase goes, I didn’t really experience it, doctors think I had symptoms for just under a year before I got diagnosed, I was experiencing all the symptoms for that time, but never got really sick. So I guess you could say that was my honey moon phase :). Once your body has settled down a little, you’ll be able to control it a bit more, youll be able to establish some good carb to insulin ratios and things will start to slot into place.

Thanks for the message, hope it helps, if you need anyone to talk to I’m here to help xxx

How to Still be Cool as a Diabetic:
-Flick your needles like James Dean.
-Pose when you stab yourself like Marilyn Monroe, bonus points for emitting sexual noises.
-Maintain direct eye contact with people as you inject yourself.
-Tell people that you’re injecting small doses of kryptonite.
-Tell people that you’re injecting yourself with The Antidote and sorry, they can’t have any.
-Wear cool jackets.
-Light your lancets on fire (or maybe not idk I haven’t done it, use caution).
-Jump over a flaming school bus on a motorcycle.
