No insurance? The first thing you do is look into any & all programs that might offer you assistance: your local diabetes clinic/hospital, your doctor(s), social programs, state/provincial programs, manufacturer programs or assistance, church groups, etc.
Diabetes is expensive and without financial assistance, it's hard to manage and/or manage with any control. What type(s) of insulin are you on? How often or when do you you test?
Start keeping a log of your BG readings, injections, food, and the times for each. You'll need data to start with if you want to start figuring out an appropriate insulin regimen.
Check out the "Travelling Overseas with Type 1 Diabetes" thread (just a few days ago)... I mention some links and information you may find helpful in getting your insulin routine in order.
