Colleen over at Meanderings tagged me for the seven meme… Thanks, Colleen! Sort of .....I am in a grumpy mood which means I do NOT like opening my mouth.......

The Rules:
1. Link to the person’s blog who tagged you.
2. Post these rules on your blog.
3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

1. I don't like blogging ot talking or anything when I am in a bad mood. I do not know why I am in a terrible mood, maybe b/c improving my life with diabetes seems hopeless! In other words I see no alternatives for improvement. Or maybe it is all chemical and whatever is messing with my diabetes is also messing with my mental state!
2. Currently I feel that every time I open my mouth, I shouldn't have! So probably I shouldn't be writing this, but then I feel I have let Colleen down.
3. I am currently keeping track of how many of my hypos I do not feel at all. Why? I am wondering if I should try porcine insulin. I doubt if this is even possible here in Belgium.... Is there a doctor who can advise me with porcine insulin in an insulin pump? I will not give up my pump. I will not accept high bg values because I am scared shitless of complications.
4. So far I only feel the hypos when I am descending through the 50s, but not when I am in the 30s or 40s. For those hypos where I was in the 30s or 40s, I did NOT feel when I went through the 50s, obviously!
5. It also feels like a hypo after a hypo, when my bg is RISING through the 50s!
6. Yesterday and today I have taken the same insulin, eaten the same food and gotten the same exercise, but today I have had hypos in the 40s all afternoon. Yesterday I had to take correction boluses (ie take extra insulin) four times. Insertion site in my thigh both today and yesterday. Neither day have I been stressed. I am NOT asking for possible explanations from anybody. I am merely voicing my frustration. I wouldn't be doing this if I hadn't been tagged.
7. I do NOT like it when people blog and have nothing to say.......

AND I am beginning to wonder why I blog. Nothing changes any way. It seems like a cure will never be found, so why do I follow the diabetic news every day? What is the purpose of telling my readers about what I have read? You readers who just got diabetes, OK I am glad that you are out there, full of your enthusiasn, cause I just do not have it anymore. Some people have said that I encourage them......but I think that is wrong. I feel that they just do not really understand how hard it is for me to get these good results. Sometimes I really wonder if it is worth it, but as I said previously I am very scared of complications. So now I am feeling I shouldn't have opened my mouth since I shouldn't discourage others. Exactly where this blog entry started.

OK - I tag: (and I have no clue who's been tagged)
Kathy, Scott S., Barry, Heidi, Kerri, Amy and Lili.
