I never thought of myself as depressed for most of my life as a D, and I suppose I wasn't until the last 2 years. I ran into 'complications' (god how I hate that word!) with my eyes, nearly lost my license, have gone through numerous laser treatments, injections and 2 cataract surgeries and now....I think that I'm depressed. I just went for my check-up last week after having the second cataract removed and got bad news. My eyes still haven't settled down (diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration), I'm starting laser surgery AGAIN, then more injections then surgery. I don't know what to do or what to think. My mom and sister think that I don't care - mostly because I show a strong front - but inside, I'm just ready to lose it.
I'm sick and tired of having no support (meaning fellow T1 diabetics). That has led me to this place. Although it's not like meeting for coffee and discussing my problems with a friend, I'm still hoping to meet some fellow T1's who understand what I'm going through.
I should apologize though, cause....when it comes to my D, I'm super negative and that will show in my posts....sorry for all the negativity.
