One of those days

(Jana M) #1

I'm having a bad day today, I'm in a lot of pain (neuropathy or fibromyalgia) and it feels like no one around me even cares enough to try to understand.  Today I had someone close to me say "wow, your life is pretty compicated" and it really pushed a button.  I've never been around very many diabetics, in fact I've only been close to two and they both died in the last year...I'm feeling like I'm the only one in the universe going through this, which I know is not true:)  Just needed to vent I guess.

Jana, I am sorry to hear that you have been having a rough time.  It sounds like a good massage therapist could be of value to you.

Jana,  sorry to hear about your pain - I hope you find a little relief soon.   Regarding you being the only person feeling like that - well, I am just glad you didn't hear my scream last week when I felt like throwing my pump thru  the wall.

It kills me when people make little comments like, "wow, your life is so complicated." As if we don't have enough to deal with without people making inconsiderate comments. The other day I got pricked while reaching into my bag by a loose lanset and my friend said, "man, you really need to be more careful about those." ok . . . you have no idea how careful I have to be about everything: carbohydrates, excercise, stress, AND needles. Are you really going to pick on me for this? Really? Not to mention that my levels had been all over the place that day and taking that comment from someone who has never even had to take a blood sugar reading just made me so mad. I'm sure I through my pump at some point that day.

Jana sorry to hear that you're having a bad day !! I hope that things get better and start to feel better soon.

I myself have had a rough week. I'm glad tomorrow is friday hopefully my bad luck stops there. This week I've managed to drop my brand new laptop down the steps and onto concrete ( busting it up pretty badly), now I have to pay for the repairs. I haven't even made my first payment yet. Then I broke my favorite watch and today (Thursday) I lost my wallet !!! All while dealing while too many highs from the stress. I just take correction units and go on about my day. I hope next week is better. I found my wallet today ( Friday) thank goodness  : )

All the additional health problems in addition to "just T1" can really get me down too! I hope you're feeling better. I try to remind myself I'm lucky to be here & alive, but some days it's hard...

Thank you all so much.  As I mentioned, I don't know anyone with diabetes so it's very hard to find someone to talk to sometimes.  This site makes it easier to deal.  Things have  been better the last couple days.  I found out last week that I am gluten intolerant so I'm trying to adjust my diet (which is turning out to be more difficult than I thought)....Anyway, thank you :)

Im very sorry to hear that. It is very frustrated when firends don;t understand, i agree. I have felt the same way. For me only one person in my family has diabetes and that person is me! Nobody understands and it makes me feel like im the only person in the world with it...  once i i got on juvenation and met my best diabetic friend Alyssa all that changed! Just find someone you can always tlk to and get advice form! Im here for ya! and im sure everyone else is here for ya tooo!

I have just recently heard about people being gluten intolerant.  I have a friend whos child has it.  The diet thing does seem to be very difficult.  I am sure you are feeling very overwhelmed and lonely but we are all here for you.  I am sorry that you have to go through all of this but try to make sure you don't let it pull you down.  Bad days happen.  Just remember that there are people that are there for you and you can jump on and talk to us any time!


P.S.  Wal-Mart where I live just started selling some different gluton free products so hopefully the diet thing will get easier.
