Tried to remain positive this week and last week, despite living 150 plus miles away from family, was made to feel so worthless by one particular member as they are stressed at minute, to put it bluntly there could a pregnancy that was neither planned nor wanted. However as i cant have kids for many reasons at this stage in my life, the usual cliches were applied to me. you can do what you want, you come and go as you please!, you are self-centred- I wish!. Work wise, despite my assertive approach lately i still ended up having 4 hypos despite my saying to my collegues i needed relieving for food breaks, at times i do think that the world is full of morons. Then get this i was given a lecture how i was sitting down too much afterwards ! People really do get on my nerves at times, Yesterday had friend crying on phone to me over some loser she cant rid herself of, seriously why cant people realise that when you aint 100% you cant deal with uneeded shite, Ive heard their story a million times its emotionally draining and tiresome. Despite trying to remain upbeat i honestly thought i could back to eating the old ways and cause myself a massive hyper yesterday, however i am working through things slowly and giving self time to relax today! sorry about expresssing myself in way i have today , just needed to let some steam off.

Andy, cant speak to the family issues. Not knowing all the "moving pieces" personally, hard to be useful there.

4 LOWS anywhere near one another in a relatively short time frame, STOP what you are doing immediately. Once, ok, bad day, but 4 times close together, thats a major, clear signal.

Don't "ask" just treat yourself, don't wait, do not test, just treat it period. Whip out the REGULAR soda and drink half the can. Problem solved. And you can continue with your work. Nothing diabetic per se, just you getting "coffee" per se. Your pick me up… (literally)

That many lows in a particular time frame says you must change the habit or guaranteed it will keep happening to you.

Many more carbs for breakfast. Very diligent, and more substantial snack, much larger lunch. All three together? Any way you slice it, gotta get more carbs/calories into your system to squash the lows. That many is clearly a medical issue, which you CAN easily change.

When they were random, haphazard times, weeks, months years apart, those are difficult to pin down. But 4 in that short time frame. Gotta make some changes… so you can stop them from repeating again.

Andy: I know how you feel. I have had to rid myself of a couple of family members by telling them that they were making me sick due to their negativity. Since that made them mad, I was able to accomplish my goal because they are not talking to me right now. Ah, what a relief it is.
As for friends who cause stress, remember people come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime so choose wisely and get rid of those who bring only stress and negativity to your personal space.

Pressure cooker's relieved here!
That is a crazy time and so often we get bombarded with things all at one time it seems. When I get hit like that, I go have a good stress relieving cry. Do some good (and sometimes not so good) self talk and get going again. I am prone, like you did, to just binge on whatever is in site. That is part of my addiction that I struggle with. Fortunately, I can see it happen now and can usually stop before it gets out of control.

I will say that as for work, I would carry with me something in my pocket that I could munch on if I cannot get away. That is dangerous and your company needs to realize that giving you breaks is much better than having to call 911.

thank you , always been a private person , however lately my feelings are starting to come to fore. ALWAYS HATED ANGER & CONFRONTATION IT AINT WHO I AM. Except this thing that has come out in me lately just seems to want to explode and i wont let it. however after writing my rant on sat i went into town and walked around centre until it tired me out and then sat in a local church vowing to thine ownself be true! , got home then a friend telephoned me with some negative stuff, i quickly stopped call by saying i had a migraine and needed rest which wasnt lying, sleep is good way of riding me of stress. thanks for best wishes.
