Hello to my fellow Type 1 Diabetics and family members of Type 1 Diabetics! Recently, I have had loved ones almost make me feel crazy for feeling the "feelings" that come with diabetes. Some days I am so content and happy. Some days are hard. Yesterday my blood sugar got high in the middle of the night and I woke up feeling kind of sick, disappointed in myself and sad. Am I a crazy person or do others feel this way as well sometimes? I don't feel this way ALWAYS, my mood just fluctuates with this disease sometimes. Is this normal?

      It's completely normal. I've been frustrated myself with my diabetes. 🤗it is completely okay to feel your feelings. It's difficult for people who don't have any type of condition to be compassionate with those who do have a condition. But you are definitely not alone with having your moods fluctuate. I have been feeling very depressed and frustrated with mine as I said 🙃 so I understand.

        @LotusFlower thank you so much 🥲 I don't feel psychotic anymore. I've been aching to hear what you have just said to me. It's like a breath of fresh air. I have been feeling so many emotions and although I don't wish anyone to feel these things, knowing I am not alone is comforting. If you ever need someone to listen, I would be happy to be that person. Thank you for confirming that I am not alone in this. I am sad that you are having to go through this as well, but at the very least, we are not alone!

        @amissundastood that is how I have been feeling lately. A lot of loved ones look at me and almost shake their heads when I am sad or feel anxious. They say there is something wrong with me. I feel like this disease is something hard to deal with and I am not crazy. We should not let them get the best of us! If you ever need to talk or vent, please message me!
