I was diagnosed in 2007 as having Anitsocial Personality Disorder. This is due to the feelings I have when it comes to being around people that I don't know. Other effects of this disorder are severe mood swings, feelings of anxiety, depression, hostility, and high's and low's almost like those experienced by someone with Bipolar Disorder.
Where this affects me when it comes to my T2 diabetes is that I was prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain in my legs and feet, due to the diabetes. However, a bad side effect of Gabapentin is that is can make the mood swings and hostility of my other condition even worse than normal. This is what scares me about taking the medication at all. But if I don't, then I have to suffer through the pain and pins and needles effect of the peripheral neuropathy. It is a lose/lose situation it seems.
