I don't know why but I been feeling like I need to cry and finally at work I just start crying. I'm in the bathroom balling and don't want to face my coworkers or manager. I don't have anyone to turn to and I feel like a burden to everyone. I'm supposed to be strong and not weak or cry. i was diagnosed a diabetic almost a month ago not to mention ADD.  im not depressed just feeling down and overwhelmed

Is there anything in particular that is making you feel overwhelmed? Anything you can put your finger on? If so, this could just be situational depression. And let's hope that is all it is. Try to figure out what is causing you to feel so overwhelmed. Is there a pattern to it, such as a certain time of month? It could be pms if it is. Keep a journal as to how you feel and see if there is a pattern or somehting jumping out at you that could be causing you to feel so down. I hope that you feel better soon.

You have your hands full with the diabetes. It is very important that you do everything you can to keep your sugars level. I found eating small portions frequently kept my blood sugars pretty stable. But I kept losing weight when I had blood sugar problems. I don't have actual diabetes, though it does run in the family, I have glucose intolerance. So it is diet controlled. I found once I got use to eating things that I could, I no longer wanted sweets or anything like that. It is a life style change that has to be made. And you do get use to it. I felt like I was eating constantly following a diabetic diet. It was just different foods. I know it is hard changing things to fit your health, but it is so necessary. You just need to look at it differently. Instead of thinking about what you can't have, enjoy what you can. Fresh fruits and vegies are so good and will be so plentiful soon with summer coming. You can use stevia in place of sugar in a lot of things. Can you have stevia? I would think it would be better than sacharine or aspertame. Though I used equal. Maybe you could find a diabetic cook book and play around with some healthy recipes. That could be fun I would think. Maybe make some up of your own.

Try not to let diabetes consume your life. It is a part of life for you now, but it doesn't have to be bad. Do you walk? I walk a lot. I think it really helps my health. I have a girlfriend that walks with me, or I walk my dog. Well the dog always goes. But I have really found that it is good both mentally and for me physically. Try to get out and walk. But make sure you have good shoes so you don't get any sores on your feet. I did and they turned black. That was one thing that got me to the doctor. But with good shoes, just a little each day helps. It takes your mind off of your problems too.

Keep posting. I hope that you feel better soon.

I feel better today. Had good sugars yesterday and so far so good today. I went to Logan's steakhouse yesterday and had a filet minon with salad and vegetable spear that had zucchini tomatoes and onion mushroom although I didn't eat the yucky mushrooms I loved the zucchini and plan on buying some tomorrow. I think it saddens me when my sugars won't go good despite following my eating plan. I still hate that I can't have the meals I love but I'm learning of new foods that are good too.

I think your sugars will level out in time. Maybe it takes a few days before your body starts consuming things the way that it is suppose to. Just don't give up hope. Keep at it. And see how it goes. I am glad that you are learning good foods. Eventually you wont even like sugar. I don't like it like I use to. I like the natural taste of the foods. Especially fruits. Can you have fruit in your diet? I imagine not a lot, but hoping some. Fresh vegies are so good too. Especially in the summer. Having a garden is wonderful where you can pick fruit off of the vine and eat it. Maybe some tomatoe plants in a pot or somehting.

I can have some fruit but not alot. So far for vegetables I like green peppers, zucchini, lettuce, tomatoes, green beans. The high sugars could been me being sick too but I hate it high. So far good day so hopefully one more good reading.

That is good isn't it, especially for after eating? I would be happy with that. I always checked mine about 30 min after eating. And fasting. I hope that it continues to go good for you. Keep up the hard work...

Do know that everybody's sugars do go up when we eat. But it sounds like your body is using it good. But it is only natural for them to go up a little when we eat, so don't get discouraged. You are doing good.

I am happy for that.

i am a male over six foot tall, broad shoulders, i work in a unionized manufacturing plant. i have held almost every position in the union. due to several factors such as my size,education and activity helping others it is assumed by others that i am a STRONG person. i cannot watch the t.v. show the biggest loser, if i do i cry. i have been in therapy for 4 years and am on meds. i still can become emotianal quick and have had to leave work early at times. fortunatley i have an f.m.l.a. certification from one of my health care providers that allows me to miss work when my issue flares. there have been times where i did not leave my house for 2 or 3 days and did not get out of bed for more than 3 hours in that day. your emotions are not unusual, you are NOT weak you can move forward.   smilewinkgrin
