Apologies to all Type 1s for having this moan I am type 2, although docs think now that I was type 1 all along and have now been put on an insulin regime, into my second week now and 2 nights ago totally threw a hissy fit! I had gone to the shops and picked up dinner for my husband and son, they wanted steak and kidney pie and chips and apple pie and custard, found myself walking round the store with tears running down my face because they were eating what I could not have! I ended up buying a packet of cigs, (I had given up), smoked one, hated it and then hubbie had a go at me fo doing so! I then totally broke down, said I could not bear a life of having to inject myself everyday and not being able to eat what I wanted when I wanted. Do any of you guys feel this way? I feel so stupid at a) having not been able to get my sugars under control (and I was dieting very hard) and having to resort to insulin and b) by throwing a stupid tantrum when I am almost 50!
