I was diagnosed with this condition back in 1985-6. This condition, over the years, hinders me from writing in script. Hence, the only thing I can write in script is my signature. Everything else I print. It also has hindered me when I was doing architectural drawings by hand. Maybe this is why I am so good using AutoCAD on a computer. As I slowly grew up, went through school, worked at different locations, and then settled down, I noticed the following - stress was the biggest factor in how bad my nervousness was. If I am under pressure, then I get very nervous. It did not matter if drank coffee or not. When I was out from under the pressure, I got calmer and my nervousness slowly got calmer as well. Also, as my weight went up, the nervousness went down.
Since being diagnosed with T2 diabetes and getting off sugar, and working on getting my weight down, I have noticed that my nervousness gets worse at times. I have had people tell me that my blood sugar was low and that I need to eat something, but all of those incidences have proven false.
They do say that one of the signs of low blood sugar is nervousness. But in my case, it is the "benign essential tremor". Now do I dismiss any incident where I am more nervous to BET? No, I do not. I check it with my glucose meter to make sure I do not have low blood sugar.
Just another thing I have to do now.
Isn't life interesting?
