I have noticed more things going wrong after finding out I had type 2 dibetes. I have 4 different types of sezures, low T, tired most of the time and when I do feel good I just can't do as much as I use to be able to do.
So… How are the rest of you doing and how do you cope with all the different changes?
I still workout when I can and stay active on my good days however when I have the seziures I spend 2or 3 days in bed(I try to stay up but just get so tired I can not keep my eyes open and I am senitive to light and noise).

I cope because I want to live. I don't let the minor problems I have with diabetes get in the way. As tired as I may be at times, I don't spend time in bed wasting away and letting these problems win.

Have you talked to your doctor about the problems you are having? If not, why? How someone else copes isn't going to help you unless you want to get up and live. You can make a choice, get help for your problem by speaking with your doctor or you can let the problems continue with no help and waste away.

I spent 3 yr. with 5 different specilist. The reason I spend time in bed is because i can not stay awake because of seziures. They tried all kinds of meds but nothing worked to help. I did a 8 day test of which I was hooked up to EEG and they stressed me by making me stay up all night then using sound and light flashes. One day after the testing in the morning later in the evening after eating dinner I all of a sudden got very sleppy and senitive to light and sound. I barely made it to bed before I passed out. I was in a comma for 12 hr. They tried several things to wake me but nothing worked. After that my Dr. told me if I ever got so tired that I could not stay awake to go to a dark and quiet room and sleep. He told me it is a defence of my brain trying to shut down. I have tried to stay awake a few times but I will fall asleep.
