I have news from yoviher!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just recieved this PM from Victor (yoviher) and he asked me to pass it on for him:
I have news. And they are fairly good. Please pass them on to the folks of the forum as I am in a heck of a hurry right now as I will have to go out for some fathers day shopping, and I do not want to leave them in the dark as I know many of them are very concerned about this.

The doctor has virtually taken out the possibilities of a depression or other mental problem. As soon as we added up the sugar problem into the equation he says now, it is a very high chance for a hypoglicemia. Frankly what seems to have happened is that I am having a very bad hypo, and that since part of the symptoms are lack of energy, confusion, mood problems and such, I ended up in textbook symptoms of depression.

With all that lack of energy, he says, I end up struggling big time keeping up with all my chores, such as schoolwork and then I end up in a state of virtual depression. That also explains apparently, why were the ADs only making it worse and the nervous symptoms have subsided incredibly since I stopped taking Zoloft a week ago.

Now, he wants to do a final confirmation with a glucose tolerance test. Its not too appealing to be poked every hour, but my parents are dragging me to it.

I am very fine and dandy right now... a bit crappy, but much better... calm with good nerves, and all that. I am also calm as I know what is the matter truly with me and we are now truly working for it. And it isn't exactly a brain tumor... lol, its treatable.

Anyway, I want to thank everyone for their support, kindness and worrying so much on this.

And to remind you folks that I still have a darn good sense of humor, check this out that I found: http://www.absolutelyabsurdparty.ca/

Anyway, folks, I am still laughing, but I would like to remind you that it is a real political party operating in Canada! I exhort all the Canadian members to vote for them!

Very good methinks! Catfolks and I have been talking to him a lot on MSN the past week about the hypoglycemia/depression link and the way he's been feeling lately, so I was tickled pink to see this in my inbox!

Great to hear! Remind Victor to ask them if they would use an IV shunt to pull the blood hourly. That way they don't have to prick him.

*nods* yeah.. I'm happy to hear that. I was like him before I was diagnosed, and on the bad days, I still am (which is more often because as a girl I have a cycle, so...) Happy he's found the cause *sends hugs* so he can peek in when he has time.

Cindy, thanks for passing on the news. I hope the doctors get his problem sorted out ASAP.

Well, thanks guys I am a bit floored with this.

Cindy, thanks for passing the news on.

The doctor says I may need a mild AD if for some reason I cannot manage to fully eliminate those bad moments, but its just that... Anyway, I guess that the hearing that its hypo is more of a relief... Its obvious that having a blood sugar where you can be on the verge of passing out after eating a banana split is not good, but its easier to deal with than depression, as it is more comprehended and everyone knows about it.

Anyway, Vicky is like "Ok, I now know fully what to do when you start going screwy while with me"

I admit it, although I have had to stuff my mouth to avoid passing out 3 times today I am commiting the sin of feeling good now! I guess hearing that its most possibly hypo is a relief. And knowing that we are going to deal with it to correct it completely.

EDIT: I found out about a lab downtown that does GTT tests instead of using glucola, they serve you pancakes... yum yum. And I will try to check out that of the IV thing.... I hate needles so much I try to run away from glucometers.
