I would like to ask a question. Again it may be a dumb question to ask. Does anyone get mad really bad when your sugar is high? Or those who have it under control did you ever get mad? When my sugar is high I get angry really easy. If anyone has ever been through this may I ask what you did to keep from taking it out on someone for no reason? Thank you everyone. I could really use some in put.

Lol, ALL the time. It's soooo ridiculous sometimes because it's always over the dumbest reasons. I even get a little violent when I get low blood sugars also.

I can get angry and weepy when my blood sugars are really low. But, I just feel really crappy when it gets high.

I rarely get mad at anything these days. It isn't worth the energy. If I get angry it is because of something I should have done or something I have done. I don't let what people say or do get to me unless it is going to directly effect my well being.

I was only diagnosed 3 months ago, but my wife says that since I have a regulated my blood sugar, things that used to set me off I let pass now. She says there is a huge difference in my demeanor since I have gotten my blood sugar into normal ranges.

I am working on my anger. My sugar when I woke up was in the 300's it does this when my liver is hurting. But I never got mad at all.

My mood swings are an indicator for me that I need to check to see what is going on. When my levels are high, everyone pisses me off and I hate it. I get very grumpy. Just another reason to keep those levels in check.

I been doing better. When my liver hurts my sugar is high. Doctors and I don't know why. I am eating right I have lost 70 lbs. now. This has been since the end of June. No one has a clue. They are still doing so many test on the poor thing. Thank you so much for the info.

I find your question interesting because my husband (type 2) gets really weird when his sugar is LOW. When his sugar is high, he is mostly hyper…not necessarily angry, but what I would call seriously fidgety. While I realize this does not particularly address your question - which is NOT dumb - I find that recognizing certain mood/personality changes that happen with either high or low sugar helps me help him be more aware of when his sugar is out of kilter so it can be addressed before things get out of hand.

As may be telling, I'm not the diabetic in the household, but living with one can be almost as 'interesting' as being one. My sweetie is 70, so it's really important for me to be aware of his issues and how he's doing since he doesn't always see the signs that his sugar is off. Reading a lot of these posts helps give me insight into what is going on with him and how to help.

For that, I'm grateful to all of you!

Thank you so much. It is hard for the diabetic and the love one. My husband gets upset with me to sometimes. But he knows that it is my sugar and always tells me to check it. When I am low I shake and get confused. It is bad. I have to take a sugar pill.

That is not a dumb question at all. I get mad really easily too when my bg is high. I didn't realize it until I was in college and I would catch myself yelling at everyone sometimes for no reason. Every time I caught myself doing it my bg was high. Now when it is high I try to avoid confrontation until it is back down. Sometimes I just have to leave and be alone so that I won't yell. I think it is completely normal to have mood swings when your blood sugar levels are off. You just have to learn to recognize them and let those around you know what to expect.

I get really angry and aggravated very easily when my sugar is high. I usually just correct my sugar and then I put my headset on and play ps3 call of duty black ops 2 and take my frustration out on killing the zombies. It usually helps but you could also take a walk and listen to music blasting in your ears.

I can't walk but about maybe a yard. I am a handicap. I can listen to music or play my WII. I could also just look at my pictures that my husband took tonight of me and my paranormal experts from TV. at SCAREFEAST. They make me happy.

I didn’t think I did, but since I’ve gotten my numbers under control, people tell me I’ve become a much kinder person.

Meditation 15 to 30 minutes daily. Focussing on positive thoughts, counting blessings and loving of self and others. I find it to be very helpful. I do become easily agitated when my sugars go too high or too low. I try to recognize it and put myself in check. Understanding where it is coming from helps in not allowing it to escalate.
When I am having a moment and I realize i'm being unreasonable I will express that to those around me and say something like please don't take it personal, my sugar is out if whack right now and it's causing me to feel very agitated so just let me work through it and I'm sorry.
It's hard sometimes because an outburst might come from out of nowhere and then we feel bad and might beat ourselves up over it. Just remember that it is a side effect and is sometimes beyond our control. We need to be patient and forgiving with ourselves. It helps to become self aware and get in tune with ourselves, Mind, Body, and Spirit. :-)

I feel like ever since I got diagnosed I'm always very easily irritated or I am very irritable, I find this to be more in effect in the mornings while I'm getting ready for work. I hate feeling like that. I don't do anything about it though and sometimes I feel like punching my partner, it's awful! I take it out on her a lot but what helps me sometimes is talking myself out of negative thoughts. I tell myself to not allow my diabetes to control me, that I have to take control of it. Hope you can find the help that you need!
