Do you find yourself being moody? I can get mad in a heartbeat and over it just as fast. I am sad and cry then laugh too. I might be crazy just wondering if any one has these moods,

My moods go up and down all the time. Sometimes I feel like I'm being pulled in so many different direction. But I adjust.

Mood swings are all a part of diabetes; Very disturbing to you and the people around you; but, I believe it is part of the metabolism, and the process of sugar highs and lows. I have severe mood swing because of a mental illness, bi-polar; Manic- Depressive, but my husband who is the most even mooded and soft spoken man I ever met (very loving, and never selfish) Any way; I noticed his mood change within 2 weeks after his diabetes diagnosis, and he is really struggling with it. It is just not him and he knows it; I tried to explain after I researched it on DC, but he finds it very unattractive for him to be; yet he has had to deal with mine for 13 years, and has no problem helping me.

I find I become irritable and will snap at people much more readily when my BG is low.

I also tend to get emotional and weepy when I am tired. That one isn't necessarily related to the diabetes.

I believe that uncontrolled BG levels contribute a lot to our emotional state. One; they physically change us. Being out of balance and can cause those ugly outbreaks of Nasty Nancy or Boo-hoo Brenda. But I think also there is a level of frustration that leads to those when we know we have broken some internal rule of control and we beat ourselves up. When we are tired of that, we beat everyone else up, too. It really does suck.

I used to just get that way around my period, but before I started to try to work on my BG levels, I found I would be very moody. I still take that rollercoaster ride, but I try really hard to not take everyone with me. Somedays I do better than others.

Touchy subject wit me. I don't notice myself in this situation, boy but both my Mother and brother do. They say BG up, with a look to kill. I yell back NO!!! But have to realize it is, get a shot in me, and I'm completely myself again.

Hi,
I have been put on Lorazapem for anxiety. The Doctor told me that people with diabetis often have depression/anxiety. Perhaps this is something that you should keep a log of and show it to your doctor. The medication has helped me. Perhaps you could also be helped with this.
your friend, Leigh

I noticed that if I am high on numbers I will be very cranky but I am also very hormonal so one thing or another maybe causing it. My hubby asks when I am cranky " did you take your happy pill?" meaning my hormones. I do not miss them. I hate the hot flashes at night so I will always take them. But Doctor told me sometimes the hot flashes can be due to high blood sugars too. Another reason it stay under control.

I can have some pretty major mood swings. Depends on what I ate and how my MIL is acting.

There are times that just want to be left
alone. If anyone says siometing I fly off
the handle at them. I don't like this and don't know what to do about it.
