Needing to feel more positive

Good morning. Positive, that is usually me, and I really try to be upbeat and happy, and I do have a lot to be thankful for. But I'm also stubborn, obstinate, don't like to be told what to do or have to stick to a rigid schedule. I'm crabby now, and that is because I lost a weekend due to not feeling well. I kinda said to heck with it yesterday, and ate some things I shouldn't, didn't help my stomach or my blood sugar. Dumb blood sugar doesn't let you get by with anything. Ugh.
Anyways, please, forgive the grump. How do you all stay positive?
I missed at least 2workouts and that upsets me, I am going tomorrow no matter how I feel. Not sure if this stomach pain is from meds or from an ulcer returning. Anyways, I was told to vent if I need to, and I guess I am. I know there are a lot of people worse off then me, but I want to stomp my feet at cry, I don't want this! I don't want to stick my finger and take pills. Yes I'm being a crybaby and I know it, sorry.
Needed to get that out, been carrying it inside for awhile, might be the cause of my stomach pain. I just want to scream and yell and cry.

On the flip side, I am trying to lose weight and work out. And I am reading Dr Atkins book and it makes a lot of sense to me and thinking of trying low carbs.
I just need a new body, lol.
Sorry for the rant

The strange thing is that once your blood sugars are much better it is so much easier, you just don't even feel like eating something you aren't "supposed to". You just feel good! GO! Keep up and you will fell so much more energy and so much better! Try it!
We know how discouraging it can be - it's ok to rant but Try it! See if you don't feel better!!


I know I do not feel positive most of the time. I do not feel bad most of the time, but not positive either. i suppose it may be a definition thing, but for me I just sort of keep going and do not feel one way or the other.

One thing even in my darkest times that i use is humor, to try and keep going. I always think everyone needs to make their own humor. So I try to find it every day somewhere. A good laugh is worth a million good blood sugars (ok, maybe not a million but some at least). I suppose one way I keep going is something my my mom always said on her high Blood sugar days. No one but you and another diabetic understands, so do not expect them to do so. Once I adopted that philosophy it made dealing with the world a little easier.

So my advice what its worth, find the humor every day it is somewhere in your life. But some days you just have to look more than others.
