    I think anxiety with diabetes is quite a common occurance and for me I rightly or wrongly blame it on the actual insulin and especially if you are going high and low i have not checked recenly with onset of internet but am sure low blood sugars make it worse.and remember reading this.

    Some days you can enter the fear of fear for no apparent reason and you have to find your own method of dealing with this or avoid it happening if possible in 1st place it's a bit like entering a programming loop it's endless unless you put in an do while statement.

    Its too long ago now but I am sure animal extracted insuling did not cause anxiety.
