Hello everyone, I am very recently diagnosed Type 1 and cannot seem to manage my emotions in the slightest way. So a little about my story on discovery. I was going through an emotional breakup with the only person I had been in a significant relationship with since divorcing 11 years ago. I was losing significant weight (which i did not have to lose) and simply struck it up to stress, that is until EVERYONE seemed to be making a bigger deal of it than I, myself was. Well, then my eye sight began to get pretty fuzzy. I had always had 20/20 vision and never had I seen an eye doctor in my life. So in I go, pretty sure I needed a pair of glasses as I was aging. Everything changed of course with the news that it was in fact something more than simply aging. This was about a month ago, and I am interested to know if others have felt an incredible sense of loss and depression during their early diagnosis? I have not handled my breakup with the least amount of grace or dignity and have done things that are so out of character I don't even seem to know myself. I have lost the opportunity to have a friendship with this person and have pushed away others that did not deserve it and made it difficult for them to support me. I feel an incredible sense of lonliness and loss. It is atypical for me in the extreme. I miss EVERYTHING and EVERYONE and don't know how to stop this emotional roller coaster. I cry at the drop of a hat, cannot stay focused at work and often just leave early (oh, I work with the person whom I now have a broken relationship with) I am confused on if this is BS related, the loss of a relationship, or BOTH. My BS seems to be unmanagable, I have not had pump training so cannot have an alarm at night and have this fear of going low while sleeping, I have had 3 or 4 "low" episodes where I became very shaky and yet other times my Bs was well over the 400 range. Please tell me if these are normal feelings and emotions for those newly diagnosed or am I simply going crazy??
