I feel like a total hypocrite because one of my last posts was about how diabetes is all wonderful and how we should stop complaining. But I am going to complain right now.
The worst thing about diabetes and everything related to diabetes is high blood sugars.
One thing you should know about me: When I am high I am in a really (like, really REALLY) bad mood. And I don’t talk. And I feel extreme self pity. And I feel like people should sysympathize with me, which, truth be told, doesn’t really happen.
High blood sugars HAVE gotten better over the last couple of years, mostly due to me becoming more mature. When I was ten and newly diagnosed with diabetes, my high blood sugars were usually in the 300 range, and they would result in me screaming at my parents and storming up stairs and stomping around for the better part of two hours. Not fun. And, because I was just newly diagnosed, my parents were afraid to give me insulin, so they would send me outside with a jump rope. I know what you are thinking: That my parents were crazy.
I still get angry at age 14. I yell at people a lot. I wont talk. But at the moment, I am getting a whole bunch of “suck it up” talk from my parents.
I suppose that I should tell you something else: I mostly yell at my parents and siblings when I’m high. If I am at school, I am silent, and wont talk at all. Only when absolutely necessary.
I believe that my parents know this. Which is probably why they give me the “suck it up” treatment. They say that I can’t yell at my college professor when I am in college. That I don’t yell at Ashleigh or Amanda (my two best friends) when I’m 300. And that they don’t deserve to be treated like they are when my blood sugar is high.
So…..what do you do? How do you manage your high blood sugars? What are your symptoms? How do you stop yourself from taking out your anger on everybody else? If you could please COMMENT.
Oh, and sorry for rambling. I didn’t really start with any direction at all.
