I am a type one diabetic, was diagnosed at the age of one year. I am now 23. I feel like I have been mistreated my entire life. I am a real estate agent, with no health insurance. Virtually no one will give me health insurance, and people that will approve me want to charge outrages premiums. Growing up teachers did not understand it when I couldn't be at school, or when I had to go to the health room because of a low or high blood sugar reading. A doctor once cornered me and said I was faking not feeling good (I was 12 years old). According to him I would have to be spilling ketone's to not feel good... even though my bg reading were 400-500 and my a1c was 15-16. Anyways, when is enough..enough?
