I'm starting to come to grips with the fact that diabetes does have an impact on all parts of my life, including work. Specifically, my work performance. When i'm high, or low, or just frustrated, my work suffers. I've had to take phone calls when i'm low, only to hang up and realize I couldn't even remember who I talked to. I've snapped at people cause i'm in a cranky mood cause i'm high. I treat lows and highs without issue but, it does take time...time that i'm not very productive LOL.
My current job is the first where i've ever disclosed that I have diabetes... and sometimes I'm not sure if that was a good thing or not. I feel like i've got more to cover up now, cause I don't want diabetes to come across as an excuse or to have people think it effects my work (which, of course it does, I just don't know if I want anyone to know that).
So, does Diabetes effect your work performance? How do you deal with it? Are you afraid to lose your job because Diabetes keeps you from doing a great job?
I also deal with depression.. equally damaging to work performance, etc. so i'd be curious how you deal with it as well.
