Hard day today. Nothing seem to be going to well. Filled out my paper for for last wishes. Not much to say. Always think when I go to bed will I wake up when it's time. Will I ever know the differwnce.

So tired of feeling sick. Tired of having high blood sugars. Would like to live a normal like. Haven't had a decent pay check for 3 months. Bills all over the place.. just want to throw in the towel and be done. Would it be hard. Just plain tired

Is there anyone local that you can speak with?

I know times can be tough and sometimes it feels as though it's not worth the effort, the mountain to climb is too high and you just want to stop climbing, but it IS ultimately worth it.

Take some small steps. Try to correct your high blood sugar at little bit, If you are @ 250, try and get it to 150 or even 175.

Give your friends here on TuD a little more info. How high are you? Still using your pump?

I can relate, Chadd.  I bet a LOT of folks here can relate.  I had a few days like this last week, when I felt like my life with diabetes was IMPOSSIBLE, and I couldn't take one more moment of feeling rotten.  I wanted desperately to hide from it, but of course that's impossible to do.

In those moments I try to focus on ONE thing in front of me.  Could be anything...  Wash the car.  Schedule an hour to lie down and read a book you really like, and DON'T THINK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE during that time (caveat for absolutely everything: unless your blood sugar demands intervention).  To temporarily place our attention elsewhere is the closest thing we get to a break from diabetes, and for me at least, it really helps.
