I absolutely understand being pissed off about having diabetes (is there anyone here who wants to have it?). But I don't believe it has defeated you. You are standing up to it and managing it. It may take more time and energy than you want to give it, but you are managing it. Give yourself credit for that and keep fighting the good fight.
I do give myself credit, but I also credit diabetes as being insoluble; it morphs, and shifts too much, and I will never get the better of it.

I have a personality type that looks at a problem as being soluble; and I can beat it, and I am tough enough. Such is not the case, diabetes is a crazy disease, with no rhyme or reason.

That is one reason that I came here, I became lost in the woods.
I would do X, thinking that is was a good thing; and the next thing that I knew, it provoked Y, a bad thing.

So, I had to come to a body of people to talk to, because I was flummoxed.

OK, that is completely understandable.

In other aspects of my life I’m coming to better grips with the idea that there are many questions which do not have The One Good True Answer. Diabetes is one of those for me even though I was not surprised at my diagnosis years ago (there may have been a bad roll of the dice but family history and my own body tilted the table a lot) and I have to accept that there’s still much we don’t know about the condition.

If nothing else, though, you are among a band of “hunters” who become more educated by the day about their prey so we can all better pursue that dragon and (eventually, I hope) either contain it or kill it.

As someone posted, I also learned not to take any Humalog if I plan on driving, regardless of how high my BG is.
How did I learn that? I've checked before leaving - around 300. I've taken 8-10 units. Then, while at a friend's house a couple of hours later, 60 & dropping fast & I have to eat lots of sugar just to get to 120...it keeps dropping. Really screws up the day.
I suspect what happens is sporadically, I'll produce normal insulin, then my added insulin gets me too low. It's totally unpredictable, so if I'm going to be running errands, NO insulin until I get back home.

"Mate, all of us here hate the bloody thing. but just by being on this site means were all just fighting it. THAT'S NOT BEING DEFEATED" that's using all out resources to fight the *******. Your still alive, that's a win right there. We all get periods when we feel sorry for our selves " the why me syndrome" there's assurance and comfort in numbers, and mate there's a bloody lot of us out here and we're not "controlled losers" we're an ARMY of plain human beings struggling together to make this bloody disease not take our lives away from us and those that care for us. Keep fighting soldier "
