Today has been one of the worse days I have had in a long time. The day has just gotten started and it is not going good. I use to think telling people that I was a diabetic was hard to do. After today I no longer think that way.
I came clean with (told them that I am gay) my father and mother. The ones who I thought would take me as I am didn’t. My father told me, “You being a diabetic we accepted that. We didn’t like it but we accepted it. But this we don’t like and don’t accept it. This one you do have control over.” Then he told me as long as this is the life I want to live I’m not welcome in his house. This was the second time that I saw my mom cry. And both times it was because of me.
This broke my heart. And here I was about to break my fiancée heart. I’m think to myself what kind of person am I to tell her this three weeks before we are to get married. But I know it is only right to tell her. She tells me okay. And she will call everyone and let them know the wedding is off.
During all this I’m stressing over how she is going to react and trying to get over my father’s reaction my bg drops like a rock. I can’t tell I’m low until I’m very low. I get off the train and start walking the block to get to my car when the low hits me squaring in the face and I’m down in the middle of the street. Next I know I’m in the ER and the doctor is asking me if I took too much insulin. I’m still in the ER now waiting for them to let me go. Stress has never done this to my bg before. I’m wondering now, can stress cause bg to drop and not go up?
