Stephanie's Story

I’ve always been a pretty stressed and highly strung sort of person. When I was diagnosed with diabetes at 19 years old, my immediate reaction was to work super hard at getting it “perfect” (classic overachiever!). I’ve never been able to afford an insulin pump, so managing with injections has obviously NOT been “perfect”. There are times when I get so frustrated because I’m doing everything “right” but my BGLs aren’t reflecting that. I’ve really had to let go of the idea of managing it perfectly, and focus on celebrating small wins – like an entire night within my target range!
