I have suffered from severe episodes of hypoglycemia for years now and no doctor I have ever gone to except for one has ever cared. I am a complete and total nervous wreck right now and have not been able to stop crying since I have left the doctors. My doctor has refused to write me out a note to eat my lunch at a certain time every day for work. I have had normal glucose tolerance readings in the past and have had the same symptoms and readings before randomly. I have had 11 readings in the 40s and 5 in the 30s lately checked with two or three blood glucose monitors every time. It has not officially happened at the hospital, but one nurse has actually caught it being extremely low (38 and checked twice at 39 the second time). This did not officially go on record. My doctor won't listen to me and I've heard these are seriously low readings. Still, no one cares unless they actually see it. I have fainted at work 12 different times lately, and this was going on when I last had a glucose tolerance test as well. If I eat, all symptoms go away, and I'm normal. My old doctor said you can get episodes of severe hypoglycemia and have normal tests, including glucose tolerance tests. I got tested for a ton of different things last time, too, and it all came back negative. That doctor is not there anymore. This test cannot pick up if you have random hypoglycemic episodes. I've researched it. I'm scared and have nightmares every night for the last three weeks that I woke up in a hospital bed coming out of a coma from this. I'm most scared that this is going to come true because this test didn't pick up last time. She said she was going to just say I "didn't have blood sugar problems if this test comes back normal" and repeat all the tests I just had ran not too long ago. It doesn't matter I've had so many readings in the 30s done by nurses and that I'm passing out. I guess it's just not that important to my doctors for me to actually be conscious at my job. I'm so stressed out. I know if I don't get a good doctor that will listen to me soon, I'm probably going to die from this. If it wasn't for friends opening about glucose powders for me, I'd most likely be dead already. I can't take this anymore, and it's all so hopeless. The only hope, shot, and prayer I will ever have is if this test shows me having an episode and that it doesn't do what it does last time. I can't take this anymore, and I don't have anything but written records recorded by me at random and what I've told them. I wish there were doctors that actually believed their patients. I can't beleive all this is all going down before Christmas and with all the other health problems I have. I've had three panic attacks since the doctor's appointment, and my medicine isn't working. I can't handle this on top of all my other health problems. It's too much for me. I'm so tired of doctors appointments and tests. I'm in so much pain all the time. It even hurts to be touched. With the way my sugars drop, I'm scared to do a fasting test again. I've almost fainted the past three times and had to eat because my blood sugar dropped in the 30s. This is dangerous and it scares me. It also triggers migraines that cause me to have to go to the ER, and I definitely can't afford that. It really scares me. I already have chronic migraines, and anything that will make them worse makes me so mad. I don't want to have to go through all this to get a statement. It's not like I'm asking for any addictive medications or anything- just my times that I take breaks changed. I'm so frustrated with life and people who just don't understand. I'm heartbroken, and it looks like it's going to be that way for a very long time. Things are really not looking up for me, and no one in my life gets it and keeps screaming at me to "grow up and stop crying". I can't stop crying, and I won't stop crying any time soon because I'm too upset. I've been through too much now, and it's only getting worse. I just wish I knew one person in my life who actually understands.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
