Thanks, I am working hard at it. I am losing weight, exercise everyday and trying to watch what I eat. I guess I h ad one bad day, other than that June morning when I was told I was diabetic. Being out with friends who order what they want and don't worry about the carbs and sugar just hit me. I am better now. emoticon

Knowing is half the battle. You now have the knowledge to change your life. I hope that will be your last day of being angry. Make the most of these days. Try your best to empower others whom may be going through the same thing. You are stronger than most. You are willing to share your story and do what you need to do to keep your life on track. Smile, you're emoticon

You are so right. I thank the good lord every night for all the things he has done for me and ask for strength to do what I have to do.

Thank you so much for understanding and being so kind. I am a new diabetic and am fighting to be like you, no complications! I have seen to many bad things happen and am trying hard not to let them happen to me! I have lost weight and still trying to lose, watch what I eat and try to learn from others. It was one of the most horrible days I had. That one day all the fear and frustration set in. I am much better now, thanks to wonderful people like yourself! emoticon

Oh girl I can so relate.When I was first diagnosed in 2001 not only was ANGRY but fearful. I started out on ameryl 20 reduced to half then non 7 years ago. As of April 2007 I was placed on metformin 1000 mg daily and recently given glyride 5 mgs. You are allowed to cry, scream and stomp your feet. It is not easy. I turned my anger into action. Each day of planning can get a bit much. But the alternative of a stroke, heart attack, going blind, being an amputee does not appeal to me. I am not speaking against anyone who has any of these. Just making a point. We have to plan our meals around favs to eat. I may have diabetes but it does not have me. It does not define who I am inside. It will not control me I will control it!! You are not alone in this battle. You were just letting off steam and you are allowed to. emoticon emoticon Oh yea I am type 2 and I have had it for 11 years no complications as I know of. Go forward and conquer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are many supportive teams here. I am on managing diabetes. Awesome friends and very supportive. never let any put you on the defensive. You are allowed to VENT.

Dave, I am a fighter and normally have a upbeat attitude. I went right to work trying to get control. I found your comment hurtful! I think everyone has a bad day once in awhile and to incinuate that I am not aware of the millions who suffer is not right. I thought I could vent on this site, I guess not.

Thanks, I usually have a real fight attitude. I have lost 58lbs exercise everyday and 99% of the time watch everything I eat and log it.

No you are not. You can use your anger to fight, like working out to bring it down. My mom (who lives with us) and my husband both have type 2 and are on insulin. I try to buy and prepare the right food for them, but I can only do so much, they need to get angry and fight it. They know that exercise will bring it down, but..... you keep at it, don't let it beat you.

I am well aware there are millions of diabetics out there and usually have a positive attitude. I have type ll and have been good about working out, weight loss, etc. I am sorry I am having a very bad day.

Anegr never accomplishes a thing. Turn the anger into a positive attitude about how you will handle it. You arent the only person with it. there are millions of us. You didnt mention if it was type 1 or 2.

Jack Dempsey once said, and I paraphrase, A WINNER IS ONE WHO GETS BACK UP EVEN WHEN HE CANT.

You will "get back up". Probably most of us went through some level of what you are experiencing, but some way, some how, we rose to fight again. Diabetes is game where you have to fight, -- FOREVER.

God speed and keep in touch. emoticon

Am I the only one that get angry about being diabetic? I know I found out in June of this year and it was like my worst nightmare come true. Today must be a bad day, I was so angry about it. Went to breakfast with my husband and friends and had the senior stack of pancakes with sugar free syrup, only at half the small stack of three and 1 sausage. 1 an 1/2 hrs later my blood sugar went from 103 to 160. I went to the gym and worked out for 35 min. ate a salad for lunch and took it again 2 hrs later and 107. I was so angry, does anyone else ever feel like that? I wanted to cry! emoticon
