My sugar was 120 Sat. morning I took my Novolog like always and ate some cereal for breakfast. Then we got the call… my sister who just had a baby 8months ago and is 22 was rushed to the ER and needs her gallbladder removed. My sugar jumped up to 300. I am not a hysterical person nor dramatic I don't think. It was almost like I could feel it slowly climbing. All these thoughts began flowing through my head and that was all she wrote. I didn't act out of manner or anything but I could tell the difference in a sense. You know it's like when you almost get in a car accident and you have to sometimes pull over to calm down. Sometimes our nerves tend to get the best of us. I don't know if it is all my diabetes or not but when something like that happens I get a cold sweat, shakes, blurred vision, just totally disoriented. Also if you get in an argument with someone any added stress just doesn't help. My doctor is always telling me less stress, now you tell me how that is possible. We all have different problems some worse than others but living stress free seems impossible. I know I may bring it on myself sometimes but it seems as if there is always something to think or worry about. If it's not when the next bill is due or what bills can I put off this week to pay another one, it's B/S counts and why is it high or low, what did I eat or not eat. It's just really hard. I find myself not having much energy either. I have noticed I feel better when I eat balanced meals but every meal is not always balanced. I'm just curious if stress tends to effect B/S for others as well.
