I'm writing because I am trying to find others who have eating disorders with type 2 diabetes. It seems really difficult to find anyone and I'm feeling really alone.
It's difficult enough to find people who have type 2 at my age (I'm 33 and was diagnosed at 29). I actually have never come across anyone my age with type 2. I'm very ashamed of it and I'm very ashamed of the eating disorder (binge eating). Someone else mentioned this site so I thought I'd give it a try.
I also have depression, so I'm just a mess. I don't care at all about taking care of myself and that just contributes to all of it. And it's another facet that people just don't get. Most people who get type 2 treat it as a learning experience. That just didn't happen with me. I've had people chastise me for that, too. I pretty much feel very alone amongst all of these circumstances and was just wondering if anyone else could relate. It would be nice to have someone to talk to.
