1. Why does pain make you seem like you're loosing your memory, and make you feel depressed? I was having kidney stone attacks last week, and it just felt like I kinda lost my memory about last week. Then yesterday, I was having lower back pain, and I kinda felt depressed.

2. If you have pets, how do they handle your diabetic situation with low blood sugar? Cats are a great example for this question. I scared my cat one time, because she thought I was gonna fall while I was trying to fill her water bowl. So the next day, she was my protector. She did not want to leave my sight. Even though we live in the same house, she was standing beside me all day.

Pain makes me stop and slow down. I need that and I suppose it could be considered depression, especially if it's chronic or very debilitating. But I think for the most part, pain is there to get our attention that something is wrong. And we should listen to our bodies.

Animals are wonderful. I was staying at a friends for a while and their puppy woke me up one night. I thought she had to go outside and while I was letting her out, I felt weird. I checked my blood sugar and I was dropping. She got me up to let me know. They are very neat that way.

pain is depressing because it hurts so much. it is hard to be happy when in pain.

animals seem to have a six sense when we dont feel well. that is why they seem to be always around us when we are feeling poorly.

take care.
