Today I am not a diabetic!!!!

Hiya people's,

Weird day today with my levels!! Woke up early on 4.1, had two jelly babies. I tried going back to sleep so I tested again 10mins later and I was 4.2! So I went downstairs got two biscuits and waited 10 mins and tested again 5.1 .. So I got in the shower got dressed for school, when it came to breakfast I was 5 ._. So I had some toast (which I don't normally have for brekkie) with-out an injection. 

At school around about half ten we have a break so I tested my self and I was 6.8 had a carb free snack and went to class. At lunch tested 6.4, could be asked to inject so I had a fruit bar (should've been about 2.5units) and thought I'd inject when I get home. 

When I did get home I was 3.9?!! Hahah couldn't believe it! Had no injections all day and levels have been perfect :3 pretty proud hahhahaahah! Had my first injection today at dinner and injected 3units, so I've had 3units today...unbelievable!! Can see why my endo thinks I'm "probable type one"!!! :) 

Does this ever happen to you? Of is it just me :S I must been honeymooning quite strongly!!

I actually give up!!

Hi everyone,

As you know I've been trying to lose weight, and it really just ISN'T happening, and I'm fed up. I've tried a no carb diet, and I've put on weight AGAIN. So I just give up! I don't know what else to try. I actually hate Type One, because even though everyone says it doesn't restrict you from anything, well it sort of does. Because it is so much more harder to lose weight. I don't normally write negative posts but I'm just so angry with myself because I'm trying everything I can to feel better about my self and its not working.

Sorry for the rant..

Hungry hypos!

Heyyy guys!

How you all doing? The name of this post made me laugh actually because when I was thinking about writing this post I kept on thinking of 'hungry hippos' hahaha :')

But anyways on a serious note, I've been feeling hungry quite a lot lately, and its super annoying because I'm trying to lose weight at the moment, and the last thing I want to do is constantly eat! So I was getting really curious to why I was feeling hungry quite frequently so I tested my sugars when I felt hungry and my levels would be low. So I was wondering if I had sort of developed a new symptom to feeling low? But I double checked with the Type One Teens group, and I wasn't alone! Quite a lot of people feel hungry when they go low too. So if any of you were wondering why you're feeling hungry quite a lot, just test your self and check, because you never know you might have the same problem as me. Just thought I'd let you guys know just in case you hadn't heard of Hungry Hypos before, because I certainly hadn't neither had my mum.

Have  great weekend followers :)

Good week :)

Hiya followers,

I've had a really good week this week :) My levels have been great, I've been in the 5 and 6's and haven't been too high at all ! Got a feeling my Hba1c will come back down, and my doctor will think I'm "Probable Type One" . _ . Hahah.. oh well :') I know I'm Type One.

How have your levels been this week? Message me via my email, or comment under this post. Can you guys give me feed back on this post and tick any of the boxes under this post.

 Thanks! :)
