    HI Sabrina, welcome to the group. I can completely understand how you feel. This disease can be scary and frustrating. I haven't been sleeping much lately and I only have my phone so it's hard for me to go into details, but I suspect you may be dealing with reactive hypoglycemia. With insulin resistance, our bodies have to produce more and more insulin to handle raising blood glucose levels after a meal. It basically over compensates, causing the hypo. The good news is that this is a good sign that your pancreas is still able to produce a decent amount of insulin. The best way to combat this is to lower the body's need to produce insulin. Keeping active and lodging excess weight can certainly help with this. Added to this is to also drop your carb intake on meals. This lowers your blood glucose rise and this reduces your body's need to produce insulin and this minimizes possible hypos. Of you can give us an some examples of the types of meals you eat, we may be able to give suggestions that can help. Also, are you on any meds and if so, what are they? Some diabetes meds actually force the pancreas to produce more insulin and can easily cause hypos. I can't miss you that diabetes isn't something that you won't have to think about for the rest of your life, but it does not need to consume it. You do not have to be alone with this. We understand.

    Hi.. my name is Sabrina. I’m 22 years old and was first diagnosed with gestationaldiabetes when I was 16. It remained a hidden, silent killer of me after my pregnancy. I went on little dr visits for myself.. and appeared to be fine so the drs said I was a-okay. anyways about a year and a half-ish a go I was diagnosed full fledged type two diabetic with an A1C of 8.3.... I IMMEDIATELY pushed myself to lose weight and lower my A1C.. six months after my diagnosis id lost 20 pounds and my A1C was a 5.1. perfectly normal... or so you’d think... it’s been around a year since then... and ever since I’ve STILL have difficulties with low sugar. And it’s way too often. I do take care of my self. Still exercise and eat right. (Maybe not all the time but I do why I can) anyways these low sugar attacks are what really kills me now.... even an hour after I eat a full dinner plate... my sugar just drops sometimes.... it’s not every night but atleast twice a month.... seriously this shoot makes me hate myself. I hate how low sugar makes me feel. I hate that I lash out at my loved ones.. I hate that I can’t control my own body to stop shaking... I hate that I have to force myself to eat.... I hate puking. I hate crying so hard it gives me a headache for three days... I literally hate everything about being diabetic... SPECIALLY after I put in SO MUCH I MEAN SO MUCH HARD WORK to lose weight and lower my A1C.... I’ve felt this way for a long time and have tried communicating to my friends and family how I really feel.... but no one understands.... everyone thinks it’ll just get better one day... and what really suck is I know the reality that this won’t ever get better... and it will literally consume me and my life until I die... I’m sorry I’m getting kind of dark here... but it’s how I really feel. And I can’t say it to anyone else or they think I’m crazy.... I’m tired of feeling so helpless and alone... and I hardly see many new posts on here ... but man if even just one person could help me out..... you have no idea how much it would mean to me...

    Do not stand at my grave...

    This is true. Everything that was ever to be...always was. It was just stuff. 13.8 billion years later we each were and are just a blink in the cosmos...and then we return to stuff. Somehow I feel blessed...and uneasy at the same time that I know that.

    Do not stand at my grave...

    Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die.

    @Kit ((Hugs)) 98 today. Nick and Kala took me out to dinner and drinks for an early Father's Day. Did good but, once again, the entrees had some sugar in whatever they used for marinade or seasoning. I find that I can tolerate that ok as long as I keep away from simple starches and desserts.

    Hi, Mike, I’d say in more detail, one of our National papers ran a similar story today, are we using our mobile/cell phones that much? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7142307/Looking-phones-causing-bony-spikes-grow-skulls.html

    5.6 at least it's coming down. I had two 500 mg pills of Metformin to test if that works. Although it hadn't worked last week. I'll try one pill tonight instead one just one in the afternoon, keep everything else the same. If it's stays down tomorrow..then I think it likely was a subclinical infection driving it up.
