Type 1 diabetes, like most chronic conditions, can challenge aspects of life and make one feel frustrated.

What is the most frustrating or difficult part of living with T1 diabetes or T1 diabetes management? Is it the lack of support or understanding from others, the need to closely monitor BG levels, the cost and access to medications, the need to monitor diet, etc...

There isn't one thing that is frustrating... its the entire living with the disease that is frustrating; however, I would not say the frustration is so much that it makes life not enjoyable. I would say the continued access to medications and supplies is worrying and causes anxiety, especially the high cost.
