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...

I don't think there is just one frustrating thing about being type 1 diabetic. I have only known for a year but was told I have been diabetic all my life. But I think one of the frustrating parts is making sure you don't go too low or too high, and for myself personally I have a body that likes to be difficult and likes to be a mystery. For example, ill eat 103 carbs at taco johns and my sugars 2 hours later will be 119 but another time ill eat 45 carbs like I'm suppose to and 2 hours later it will 289, which makes no sense. Even my endocrinologist doesn't understand it. But when I first found out I was diabetic I wouldn't go out anywhere because I would get embarrassed about doing shots and I didn't have a freestyle cgm at first, I had to use a regular glucose meter I was so slow at it and I felt embarrassed and frustrated at it. But there is so many frustrating facts about being type 1 diabetic.
