I'm finding that the past two weeks my levels have been normal but I'm having major mood swings. I snap at everyone around me and find every little thing they do annoying. I'm finding it really hard to stay positive in my outlook as well. I know Diabetes isn't a death sentence and it's managable but I'm feeling increasingly sad about life and sometines don't feel like living anymore.

Any experiences or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I've done this before. I have felt the mood swings. I have felt the depression, sometimes, I won't eat. I'll sit in my room and wider what would happen if I quit… Then I look around. I look at all the people that love, and would miss me dearly if I did die… I get up, for them. I fight on, to see them age another day. I keep going, because life is more beautiful when you have something threatening to take it away.

I see your age. Tell your primary doctor these feelings and suggest they check hormones, thyroid and other thingys (LOL) in your blood. It could not even be anything mental. :) But my other suggestions you could still do in the meantime. Also, look up or by a book about practicing mindfullness. It's a tool used to reduce stress and anxiety.

Well, I have this issue kinda as well. I've had the mood swings and getting pissed off at people for minor things. I already know I have depression and a long list of other mental issues as well previous to being told I have diabetes. You may want to go to stress management, join a physical diabetes group to get more support, try yoga/meditation, seek religion, or see a therapist/counselor. I would try the fist ideas before doing therapy. . .expensive stuff :P Work on it awhile with the alternatives (and it takes work) but if you feel as though you are a danger to yourself or planning anything, go to the emergancy room.
