Diagnosed 3yrs ago …Hi everyone, I have been wanting to ask for the longest time,shamefully I have kept it to myself.(Denial of craziness)

But I have decided to ask my friends on here in hopes someone can relate or offer advice.
So Here you are…
…What effects to you feel your diabetes has had on your mental state? Any? a little ? or too much to notice?
…There are times when I cant do the simplest daily activities,forget the things that I was just told,or forget things that I had known for years and years.. And thats not the worst of it …I get so terrible confused at times that I could just breakdown..on the spot…especially in public..I nearly feel like I need to move to another area code…due to the fact that I must appear Crazy to most everyone I come into contact with;mumbling speech,
sometimes even appearing drunk!!
I use to laugh at myself when I would have A "momment" of "?"
But now..I just have a hard time laughing at my mental state.
My sugars are still all over..but they are going lower,its just that they were so very high for so long…getting back to a "normal" mental place is looking …blurry right now../.
AM I THE ONLY ONE? IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFO OR LINKS ON THIS ; DIABETES AND THE MENTAL STATE(?) plz let me know!!
