Like Annette I’ve been p challenged since I was 9. I’ve been to Uni; abroad on holiday (although Alison can give you more help and tips there) I’ve got married and have three healthy children (two are twins). Life carries on occasionally I rant about how unfair diabetes is WHY ME ! but this is all normal. Just ask plenty of questions. Good luck.
Yes I agree you have to blood suck. I’ve lost enough over the years.
