I'm new to the forums, but I have been on the site since the doctor told me I had gone from being Pre-Diabetic to having Diabetes. I am not on Insulin or anything like that, just Metformin twice a day.
My reason for posting is that I was wondering where I could look to find support groups in my area that meet once a week or every other week for folks to sit down, & talk about how Diabetes is affecting their lives & what little tricks & shortcuts they've found that help them along the way. I know that is what the forums here are for, but sometimes physically talking with other people is beneficial too. The reason that I ask is because since I've been diagnosed, I've noticed that I get more mood swings now, particularly depression. Whereas, the episodes don't last long, only a few hours, I do get quite low on the emotion side & start thinking badly of myself & in genreal ripping myself apart. It is unhealthy to have these thoughts, I know. I find it frustrating that it affects me this way. Any advice on where I could search? I'd greatly appreciate it!
