Bringing it back to Racer

Racer, I don't know anything about diabetes. But I wanted to say that it sounds like a lot to deal with when it does get unbalanced. My only experience with hypoglycemia is much milder than what you are talking about. I find that my blood sugar goes down if I don't eat by a late morning. I will suddenly feel spacy, jittery, anxious, confused, and for a few moments I don't know why. I find myself trying to do work and unable to figure out what to do. I have learned to stop and ask myself "why is this happening" rather than automatically assuming it is my depression. And, of course, when I ask myself the question, I always realize, "oh, I forgot to eat anything today". Then I take a break to eat, and within 30 minutes I am better and able to get back to work. I try not to forget to eat, but it is hard for me to eat first thing in the morning sometimes, so I bring coffee and food to work and eat it there, but sometimes things get so busy so fast, I forget to eat. I work in a school, and we are in a new building that has a decent food service, so that helps now. The staff can buy meal prepaid meal cards, so I don't have to worry about having cash with me. And, lunch starts fairly early, because the kids have to eat in shifts, so if I forget breakfast, I can get lunch at 11 am. I am trying to keep on a fairly regular eating schedule, just like I am trying (struggling) to establish a regular sleep schedule. This means remembering to keep some time open during the day to go get lunch, and since it is so easy to do now with the cafeteria, I have been doing better. Anyway this is a long post for someone who has little to say about the subject you are asking about. I guess my main point is that yes, I can relate to hypoglycemia/depression association, but can only imagine what it must be like for someone with a much more severe hypoglycemia experience, because even my mild experience seems to have pretty distinct effects. Racer, I also wonder if you have asked this question on a diabetes bulletin board. Keep us posted.
