I'm kind of getting tired of being diabetic. I go through it at points in my life, and I'm in that low right now. It just bothers me that I don't feel good, and it's pretty much because of the diabetes. This morning I couldn't get my sugar to come up. Over a 3 hour period it wouldn't get above 60, no matter how much I ate or how much juice I drank. It drained me for the whole afternoon. It sucked and I hate it so much. I was diagnosed when I was 8 (25 days away from being 9) so I don't really remember what it was like to NOT be diabetic, but for a day I would love to not have to worry about it. I know that this will pass and everything will be okay, it's just hard at the moment.

But I love that I found this site because it's making me realize that I'm not alone in my journey. It's also made me realize that I need to be going to the doctor more often. I'm comfortable in my insulin right now but I'm kind of thinking that it's time for a pump. I think that this would help me out a lot, especially with trying to find a new job. I recently was let-go from a job because my diabetes was getting on my boss' nerves. And it was getting on mine,too. I was having to skip way too many meals and it was effecting my mood which was then effecting my blood sugar, and not in a good way. I take it with a grain of salt, but it's still hard. My diabetes has rarely ever effected things that I did, and this actually only the 2nd thing in 15 years that I haven't been able to do due to diabetes.

It's just hard sometimes, and I'm just venting for now.

I understand, and you have been dealing with it for a lot longer. I am saddled with two, a kidney issue since I was 8, and now this. At least with the kidney thing, pretty much I know I can blow off a couple of days of watching it..and I'll just feel lousy for a bunch.

I realized a few hours ago, while thinking about what to do on my vacation, this will be myfirst vacation since being diagnosed, and their ain't no vacation from this...

But am going to ask my endo if it would be so bad to kinda live a little for a week and just cover it....dunno..too new to me..

My job sometimes messes with my meal times, and I am on a pump...maybe I don't have the hang of it yet, but as long as I eat more or less at the right times things ((BG #'s) go ok, but if the meal times move around too much (like when traveling back east-3hr time change) they just go weird...or if things are very stressful

I do love my pump--pretty much a needle phobe and that 6-8 shots a day was getting old really fast, glad my insurance co was reasonable about the pump--wish they were so about the CGMS (I don't know when I get low) ...

but thanks for venting and giving me the opportunity to do so...it seems to help to vent to people who don't just tell you just to suck it up (or as they like to say her in Nevada...cowboy up)...
