Hey Everyone! This is a continuation of how your blood sugar lows, highs, and swings affect your mood! If you have anything you would like to contribute to this discussion, please do! If you are feeling pissy because you are high, low, or swinging, then please go to Piss and Moan 3! It grew out of this original discussion! Renee :)

Hello guys. I think I'm in a brief mean remission.My BG's have been through the roof. Maybe I have glucose toxicity and don't have the where with all to be mean.Harlen ,enjoy your pissy days. God knows there is enough going on to get one pissy. If i ever recover from being glucose intoxicated I just might get pissy again. Love you all,Pete

I get mean when my blood sugar drops, of course I feel like a truck has run over me and backed up and run over me again. Highs just make me feel bad.

Good Oprah Show today regarding Diabetes and how it currently doesn't get the public attention it deserves…I SO AGREE WITH THAT…The show did focus more on the preventable,and curable Type II…but there was good general information regarding diet etc there…I notice many Type I's think they just adjust insulin and eat what ever they want…this isn't the smartest choice either…you can further complicate your status…

Anyway…it was great…although not a T2 i wanted to mention it so you all can catch it…good info and explainations…

Love Ya's!!

I'm not a fan of Oprah on any level…but Perhaps if she mentions diabetes then someone will listen.

Deb-G 2010-02-04 20:52:57 -0600 Report

Totally agree…I was more interested in the show content then the avenue…There is so much attention put on other deseases and diabetes is still the "silent killer"…someone dies of a heart attack but the underlying cause was diabetes…people just dont "SEE" the desease and its important to bring it out more…especially with the rapid increase in Type 2's in this society…I'm a T1 but I still worry about my children for either type :-/

Deb, you bring up a valid point-the fact that diabetes plays a role in the development and/or accompaniment of the other conditions that encompass the dreaded "metabolic disorder". I always feared having children because I did not want to pass on my gene for T1. Renee :)

Renee, you would have been a great mom. I can believe that was a very difficult decision to make. After having our son, I told my husband no more. He is a fabulous man, and I am not sorry we had him, but I don't think I would have been a good mom to 2 kids…and I felt like a single mom during tax season, which seemed to run from late January to Oct 15. And I admire ANY woman who has more than 1 child. As I get older, I see lots of women I wish would have thought twice about having kids. And wish more of the ones that decided not to, would! Bless you.

Thank you, Suzie, and God bless you, too! I still hope to be a mom someday-I would love to foster and/or adopt a child-I hope that God hasn't completely given up on me!!! Renee :)

Deb-G 2010-02-05 07:35:59 -0600 Report

Awe Renee…In the circle of life there are so many things our childrens gene pool can be at risk for…Dont let that discourage you from creating and loving…You know my girls are about the age now that I was diagnosed…but they both test fine…My youngest was born with a heart defect that I use to blame myself for (my diabetes causes the risk for it)…but you know there's plenty of non-diabetic parents having children with other things or even the same thing! So I decided I cant live that way and had to let it go…She had surgery and is fine now, 100%…so…there are blessings as well :)

btw…you would make a wonderful Mom…no matter how you chose to fill those shoes they are all equally important and you'd be great at all! :)

dietcherry 2010-02-05 08:19:20 -0600 Report

I know you're right, Deb, and thank you for the vote of confidence! :) I am thankful that your kids are healthy!!! I have often thought of taking in a child with diabetes because I would be equipped to deal with it and, hopefully, my good habits would rub off (and bad ones would stay dormant)! Renee :)

My brother, who is 3 1/2, almost 4 yrs older is now pre-diabetic. I think we are the first in the family…you just never know. Back in 74, my friend's baby had a hole in his heart that wasn't treated (don't think the doctors found it in time). Michael lived about 1 month. She always wondered if it was caused by the medicine we both took for morning sickness several years before it was pulled off the market. Not Thalidomide, but turned out to be dangerous nonetheless. Back then they didn't know of the connection of so many drugs and birth defects. Sigh.

i have been fighting with the unemployment office and stressed to the highest level so my numbers are all over the place. Not eating doesn't help but I just can't stomach food right now. My mood is like a rattler.hissssssssssss…lolol

imsuzie2 2010-02-04 06:37:37 -0600 Report

If you are not eating, please keep tabs on your sugars. We need to find a way to eliminate stress from everywhere…any suggestions?

Annorra 2010-02-05 01:53:41 -0600 Report

I learned the hard way about the importance of eating regular. My blood sugars went way up and I had been keeping them fairly well under control. Hang in there and it may get better. I know fighting unemployment offices is about as bad as trying to get anything done with a docotors office

I thought I would get this ball rolling-I have been running low today-for a few days, really; but this is much better than this past weekend when I was high, and acting like a real jerk! I had a major meltdown attempting to cancel my landline; I had to call back the next day and take advantage of the great offer they made to get me to stay but I had to apologize for my jerky behavior the night before! She was very gracious about it! I also said some things I regret to someone very special to me and am hoping that since they are diabetic, too, they understand that I was not myself! ;)

Since my husband completed his prostate radiation treatment just before Christmas, I have slowly been falling into a down!!!!! I do have chronic depression but my Effexor generally keeps me on track, neither high nor low. Started BS treatment in October, I think…Metformin. Everything bothers me..Blood Sugar is mostly okay now…a few ups and downs. I guess I have Blood Sugar Blues along with Jan./Feb. blues. Any funny stuff is welcome..I need cheering up.

paulbudman 2010-02-03 20:29:33 -0600 Report

A person that is very special to me, does not owe an explanation nor an apology. There is a complete understanding and compasion that is a given! Paul :)

Harlen 2010-02-03 14:01:24 -0600 Report

What do you do when your feeling pissy and are not having highs and lows
I do get grumpy when I go high as well as when I go low lol
Best wishes

dietcherry 2010-02-03 14:06:23 -0600 Report

Harlen you always make me laugh! If you are pissy with no excuse, then just stay away from people! LOL Don't ruin the BS excuse for the rest of us!!! Renee :)
