[IP] re:and I mess up again...paramedics



Hi...
I can't remember who wrote about this BUT...I found out that hormones have a
lot to do with what you may be going through...
I'm 46 and starting through menopause, however...last year was a terrible year
for me (paramedic wise)...I was so ashamed,because in my 36 years as a
diabetic no one has ever had to call the squad for me...last year it happened
TWICE......finally nailed it down to HORMONES.....the day after, the blessed
event always came...I passed clear out...unconscious with no warning and there
were people all around me.....talk about embarrassed( I live in a small
town...and well you get the picture!!!!!!) I've started on hormones(actually
birth control pills) and what a difference....no swinging blood sugars at that
time....and no crashes.....I never knew what had hit me afterwards....I'm glad
to say things are on an even keel now....hang in there....and don't beat
yourself up.....IT HAPPENS....and I will never again say..."that'll never
happen to me!!!!!!"sorry so long...but just a thought since you've just had a
baby .??? hormones could be playing a part?????...take care of
yourself.......
sorry to ramble guys...this one just hit the nail on the head!!!!!....have a
great holiday......
