I was diagnosed with t1 diabetes last november and since then I have been hitting the weights, improved nutrition and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
I became curious about my test levels the more I’ve learned about exercise and nutrition and decided to go get some blood work done. Still waiting for estrogen, fsh and vitamin and mineral levels to come back.
My wife also has been complaining about my irritability and moodiness, as well as lack of desire to go out and do anything. I dismissed it at first but given some time to reflect, she’s right. I used to be way more easy going and wanting to go out and do stuff. I was the guys trying to push other people out the door. Like this weekend we were going to go to a wine festival. We just had our second child 4 months ago and haven’t had any time like that for just us. I should have been excited and looking forward to it. I had fun when I was there but could have cared less and felt annoyed having something on my calendar. That’s not right.
Libido fine, not extra tired - just everything feels “beige”. I wish I knew if this was related or just psychological. Hoping that this forum can help me.
Suspicions or first impressions welcome. Google results don’t give me much to go on to interpret this…so hoping folks with experience can lend some points of view.
