The last few weeks have not been the best. Despite my best efforts, I am not coping very well with my diagnosis and BG swings. Lately, I have been very angry and scared. Angry because I got the genetic short stick (thyroid, fibro, heart condition, nerve condition, and now this). Scared because I don’t have a good support system at all. (It doesn’t help that I get the crazies when I go high/low.)
I feel like I am witnessing my life implode despite doing everything I am supposed to do. My heart is breaking, and I am so scared that people will not be there for me when I am physically unable to do it for myself. When I go low, I don’t usually realize what is happening more or less have the sense to ask for help.
I am interested to know how you cope and how you prevent the symptoms of your swings from damaging relationships with friends and family.
