I am diabetic for last 8 years

How many other diabetics out there get to a point of extreme frustration?? Ive had this damn disease for 8 years but I still have moments when I get these out of control bouts of rage at feeling like I have so much of what wouldve been a much easier, normal life just robbed from me because of my worthless pancreas . It just had to make me suffer like this. Ive been put on disability at my job because my blood sugars go too low a lot of the time no matter how many times a day I check them and eat. They say well maybe this job isnt for you because it doesnt fit in with your diabetes lifestyle! God nothing goes right and I tried soo hard to control my blood sugars!? Not being able to ever just eat something without having to immediately worry ohhh.... whats my blood sugar going to do now? Its like im carrying around this huge weight on my chest and no matter what I do it wont leave me the hell alone, God do I feel pissed!!!

Wel I can only suggest you to meet a counsellor. I am also a diabetic, and have had this for past 15 years. I am doing quite well. And enjot=y vacations with my family. I just have to be regualr on my sugar checks and follow ups with my doc. Thats all. You need to have a balanced diet. Go by the glycemic index, if the carbohydrate content is more in any food then avoid it or have it in minimal amounts. Otherwise follow the normal guidelines of  Low Fat, Low Sugar, Low Salt, Plenty of Fruit and Vegetables, and Plenty of Complex Carbohydrates (wholemeal bread, potatoes, grains, beans, peas, and other starchy foods. There are NO foods which must be completely excluded from diabetic diet. It is also NOT necessary to avoid sugar competely.
