    Still awake and slowly climbing back up the blood sugar ladder. I know these numbers probably don't mean much to most, but their ruling/ruining my life and I'm tired and I'm angry and so utterly at a loss. I feel so alone. [​IMG]

    Hi. Can you let us know a bit more about your insulin regime and whether you get good support from the your surgery or clinic in balancing your insulins. Are you carb-counting?

    I am sorry that you are going through this, I do understand what it's like when you want your blood sugar levels to be in control but they just don't get there. I am currently having problems with high blood sugar levels and that makes me feel very down and upset and sometimes make me feel like diabetes is rulling my life.
    I know you may not want to but I do think you need to contact your diabetes team if you haven't already.

    You can always private message me if you feel the need.

    Hi All,
    Thankyou for your words of encouragement. A bad night turned into a bad week and I've been trying to turn it round.
    It's good to have a place to vent or find comfort. I really appreciate it.
