When I get low, I feel spaced and tired. My legs get wobbly and I don’t make much sense when I speak, if I can even form a sentence. The worst feeling I get is horrific paranoia about anything and everything. Waking up in the middle of the night with that is something I not wish on anybody. #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

Went to the doctors today to get my medical examination done for the DVLA. Whilst there, I got my bloods done including HbA1C. Let’s hope it turns out okay. I am hoping to get a flash meter soon as well; need to see the diabetic specialist nurse first! #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

I’ve always struggled to explain what high blood sugars actually feels like. There’s different levels to it. At first you just feel heavy, under your skin. You then get that feeling of lactic acid, but more like of you were to tense your muscles really hard, edging to the point of causing a cramp, but constant. Then comes the sharp headaches, when you’re really high, they almost paralyse you. I’ve been taken to the floor before in sheer pain I thought I was having a brain aneurism, but it was moving all over, under my skin. My pain levels are very high, but the times that’s happened, it’s horrific. #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

Taken the nephew to try PSVR. I played Superhot and he’s playing GT Sport. I’m impressed with it!

Nobody said you can’t be a diabetic and trash out of an evening. Especially when there’s something too celebrate. #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

I really hate taking photos of my whole mid section because it’s a bit too suited to being injected. But this is my daily life. Stab stab stab stab. #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

Need to reload my nighttime low box. There’s a certain annoyance to waking up at 3am and having a low. The last thing you want to do is head downstairs in the dark and find food to get your sugars up. So I have this box fitted for three nighttime lows. The small boxes contains four jelly babies and the bag has six digestive biscuits (two per low). So all I need do is wake up, have a box of jelly babies and have two biscuits. Despite this, I’ll probably head downstairs for milk as my mouth will be dry and I’ll still feel like crap in the morning! #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

Today is World Diabetes Day. A day about type 1 and 2 Diabetes that also commemorates this rather amazing Canadian who co-discovered Insulin’s birthday: Dr. Frederick Banting. It’s with his work that I have this life saving hormone. #worlddiabetesday  #worlddiabetesday2017 #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

This puts diabetes into perspective; each one of these needles has been in me multiple times... more than they really should probably. There are well over 100 needles in this box. What’s worse are some of these would have gotten blunt over time yet still useable. Now who fancies fetching something out of this? Done it before and it feels horrible! #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

I love lazing at home playing video games. I’m somewhat healthy, I try and go to the gym when I can and I eat fairly healthy (not “diet” healthy, which 90% of it is bull). Some may see my video game lifestyle as s possible reason why I’m diabetic. Many people think diabetes is directly related to being overweight; this is not true for type 1 or type 2. Closest thing true to that is being overweight may increase likelihood of type 2 diabetes, but it’s not a deciding factor. In fact most people with type 2 aren’t overweight and most overweight don’t develop it (I think that’s source from Diabetes UK, but I can fact check if anybody queries that). With regards to my diabetes, type 1, it’s most likely caused by genetics and unknown factors. Anybody can develop it at any time but type 1 is most likely to occur at development stages in life. So, if somebody has diabetes, you’ll be mostly wrong to assume it’s their lifestyle. Actually, I found out recently there’s a whole host of body building groups that are made up of type 1 and 2 diabetics, so healthy people can be diabetic! #type1 #type1diabetic #type1diabetes #t1d #diabetic #diabetes #bluenovember #diabetesawareness #diabetesawarenessmonth #bluenovember💙

Yesterday my nan hit 80. A brave Irish gal who proved her worth by making a speech in the middle of the Denmark Vs. Ireland match last night!  Fun fact, she used to do my insulin injections like throwing a dart. Love her.
