Oh boy I just developed a life long condition with a strict diet and it makes me confront my needle phobia multiple times a day what fantastic luck.

If the anger thing is really becoming a problem is there someone you can talk to about it?
Thank you, Segfault. I just spoke with my sister and she's as stumped as I am about my anger. I'm not angry in the mornings or at work. I don't even have to fight off anger as its just not there. But today when I got home from work I looked at what I needed to do and the anger just flew out of me.
I understand about the donut, coke and the couch. Its just hard for me to accept the fact that this is how its gonna be for the rest of my life.
And truth be known, I'm okay with that. It's all good and beneficial so I can and will learn a new way of thinking about food.
Thanks again, I'm so thankful you all are here!

Honestly - once you get over the hump of doing it, after a while it becomes a habit like anything else, and the unimaginable becomes routine. Do I still sometimes wish I could grab a sandwich from the deli like other people? Sure. Have a carton of ice cream or a big watermelon? Yeah - but it's okay. It doesn't gnaw at me. It's just how it is, and it's okay.

You'll get there. Promise.

Nemo? Years ago I realized I was flying off the handle like that at the smallest most insignificant things, and when I finally mentioned it to my doc, he put me on low dose antidepressant. I have to believe he was right, because it worked - I stopped exploding at the slightest things. My depression just manifests as anger - not sadness or the blahs.

I've been taking Cymbalta for 13 years. If I don't take it I get irritable. This anger is not irritation. It is full blown anger....out of where I do not know.

Are you checking your BG when this anger comes on? I used to do this before I was in control. My girls would say "mom check your blood sugar". They were right. It was up.

Yes, I did think to check it when I was angry. It was under 140. BUT...this morning as I was taking my daily pills I noticed my Cymbalta was not in the bunch. I don't think I remembered to put them in my daily pill box. Yikes. I took one this morning and will continue taking them as usual and see what happens.

All of us have been where you are.

You are wasting a lot of emotional energy which could be directed toward controlling your condition.

This, in the long run, could be as harmful as your diabetes.

I wish you luck in working through it. There is a lot of support here, in various forms.

No more anger. Funny how a simple pill can make the anger go away.

So glad you're better. That's how I knew my depression diagnosis was correct . . . the pill dispelled the anger, and what a relief!

You had anger with your Depression?
I was beginning to think I was losing my mind. It's very scary to have an emotion and not know why you're having it.
When I first found out I had Depression it was sadness and loss of hope that dominated my thinking. And an internal anger directed at myself.
Last week when I was having the anger problem it was directed externally. I guess lots of things going on up there in our minds.
