I was diagnosed with Type 1 at 23 years old and now I’m 27. Last year I discovered that reading/writing music really helps me deal with some of the hypo/hyper anxiety and depressive thoughts. I really don’t want this post to seem like an advertisement. It is more of me sharing with other Diabetics some music I made that has everything to do with how I cope with the mental stuff. It doesn’t have any lyrics or anything, just instrumental.
The album cover depicts two versions of me. The one on the right is me pricking my finger and is associated with the depression. The one on the left is me playing music and being happy.
I hope you have all found an outlet for dealing with this disease! I am a relatively new Diabetic, so I’m still trying to find the things that help me out.
