    Guys looking for help/advice and opinions, finally got my hba1c back to good level, but problem is in still angry most times is not all and have short fuse specially with kids and I hate it as pushing then away from me.
    Do you think this anything do with diabetis or anything at all, as my wife said I used to be fun and now I don't want to do anything i.e play around with kids or go out do anything.

    I feel in pushing them away again when my bloods were high but can't be down to just bloods.

    What yous think, worth trip doctors or anything?

    (Not a Dr disclaimer)
    If you are feeling unnecessarily angry, I presume you have a generally low mood anyway? At this time of year, that is more likely to be a result of hormonal deficiencies due to lack of sunlight. This has a negative feedback effect because it makes you less inclined to go out and you therefore end up with less light. Lethargy can also be caused by vitamin D or B12 deficiencies.
    My non-clinical advice would be: take supplements for the above vitamins and break the cycle by organising a family walk - don't take no for an answer! Make it at least 90 mins.

    Expecting kids to listen to you is probably a bad starting point! :D Seriously though, if you think your mood is affecting your family relationships then absolutely discuss this with your GP. They will try/suggest a few basic things, but may also refer you to a specialist. Unfortunately, that *will* require patience!
    Also bear in mind that type 1 is thought of as an auto immune issue which can affect hormone production other than just insulin - it's possible that may have a part to play?

    I am a mum of two now 30 and 27, it maybe the time of year, lack of vitamin, or as you were high but now coming down yo-yo kids will never listen, well not much, but they do learn, go outside your zone it's hard to start with but things will change, as for mine they just let me get on with it, or say mums loosening it again, you will get there
