How Sweets and Simple Carbs Can Derail Your Life -- And How You Can Get Back on Track by Connie Bennett, M.S.J., C.H.H.C. with Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D. Foreword by Nicholas Perricone, M.D. Published by Berkley Books Reprinted with Permission "Spills the beans on the shocking impact of simple carbohydrates on aging and quality of life..." -- Frequent Oprah Winfrey guest Mehmet C. Oz, M.D., coauthor, YOU: On A Diet INTRODUCTION This excerpt (from Chapter 13) tells the sad story of how millions of Americans are plagued by a mysterious constellation of symptoms but don't know what's wrong with them -- and often, neither do their doctors. Unfortunately, the physicians and loved ones of these ailing millions often wrongly assume that they're "hypochondriacs" or that they have a mental disorder.

    "Diabetic" Mood Swings :-)

    This discussion has 2 questions/purposes:
    1. Does anyone else deal with these "Diabetic" mood swings, where you're just fine one day, and completely irritable/depressed the next?
    2. When addressing this with an endo, I got the same answer as when I bring up any other problem, "It's the diabetes." Is everything the diabetes??? What if I weren't a diabetic, then what would it be???
    *frustration*

    It does cause mood swings. I've been a diabetic for 12 years now. I'm 22. When my sugar starts bouncing nobody can hardly start to be around me. There's a youtube video on this called "diabetes monsters" an that's what they call us when we start getting crazy cause they know it's not really who we are it's the sugar. An yes I get depressed. I'm actually on an antidepressant/mood stabilizer because dealing with diabetes is so stinking hard an I never feel like I cant get ahead of it. An if you were weren't a diabetic then it would be called depression an it would be best to see a psychiatrists. Really it's good to have a therapist to talk about how you feel an let your feelings out about diabetes. That's what I've had to do an it helps alot.

    If my levels are too high, I am a complete witch. I don't think I get depressed really, just very tired and hateful. I do think my sugar levels have a direct link to my arthritis. Maybe I'm hateful because I'm in pain.
