Just Tired

Hi Everybody.
My name is Kevin and right now I'm just overwhelmed with dealing with diabetes. I wanted to go out tonight to a club to dance and my blood sugar is 276. I took insulin to correct but my body is a bit resistant right now and all I want to do is sleep. I feel like I have an energy level of an old man, no pun intended for older people but you guys get what I'm saying. Anybody out there, feels my frustration ?

Hi Kevin,

Yeah, I completely understand what you mean. Even when you get enough sleep, dose properly for your food, and try your hardest, diabetes control isn't always great - and it's just exhausting. I don't think it ever really goes away for good, but i've noticed that the better my glucose control, the less crummy I feel all the time. Not that that helps much for now...

Stay strong. It bites, but remember there are people out there who get it. I know it feels like it, but you're def not alone in feeling like this.
