I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have been dealing with this for 7 years with my husband. it has gotten worse now that he is trying to fix the highs and lows!!
when it goes low he used to be goofy and drunk lie now he get mad and calls names... it isnt easy, he has broken things and oh boy..
I know this is an old thread. Does anyone have other ideas?
How about seeing a therapist. They may be able to help him and you deal with all of the mood swings. Sometimes it as simple as that. If he won't go what about going yourself. Maybe he isn't the only one feeling frustrated and helpless and you might need someone there to vent to as well. Sometimes we forget as care givers that we need help sometimes too!
My husband was diagnosed with T1 9 months ago. The one thing that has truly helped us both was to attend a T1 support group. We are in our late 20's, and I think the rest of the group (maybe another dozen or so people) are in their 60's-80's. They are an incredible wealth of knowledge- one woman has lived with T1 for 63 years! There are spouses and siblings that attend as well. It is hard for me sometimes because I feel like this disease may affect my husband's body, but it affects my heart. I worry and stress and just want to do everything in my power to help him. But it teaches me balance, and to calm down, and let my husband handle things the way he chooses. And it teaches my husband to remember that this affects our whole family, and to be patient. We attend the group just once a month, and they arrange various speakers to come in and give information on depression, pumps, exercise, etc. It's been a great asset.
