Another thought depression and diabetes. I haven't read a lot about it because I haven't had too much trouble with it personally. Which is strange in a way since depression runs in my family and I have had issues with it before. I think it is probably true with any life changing event, especially health related issues that the newly diagnosed have a higher incidence of depression. Their whole life has changed. They have to make concessions in their lifestyle or activities. They wish things were the way they were before. I don't really feel it is the diabetes that causes the depression so much as just having a life altering disease and having to deal with it. But there could be more to that than I am aware. I will look into it more. Have you found anything that has helped with your feeling sad? It is important to talk to your Doctor about it also. I do know that exercise can help with depression because of the endorphins it releases in your body. Hope this helps and I will let you know what O find out.

I hope you are feeling better. Part of this journey we are on to control our diabetes is learning the ropes and what triggers a rapid rise in sugar from our diet. Sometimes diabetes also has a mind of its own and different things will set it off and throw your numbers out of whack. It can be frustrating. Let me know how you are doing today. We care about you here.

I do. I've heard that depression can be a problem with diabetics. Up until the last few days I've done really well and have felt really good. But my blood sugar is all over the place (and mostly on the high end!) and I'm doing what I'm supposed to. I'm desperately trying to control this with diet only.

Oh well,maybe tomorrow will be better?
