I left the community for some time.

It seemed like every time I signed in, it was doom and gloom time.

I went through a period of time where panic attacks sat under the surface and I had to avoid doom & gloom to keep them at bay.

After an ER visit two days after Christmas, for a panic attack, I finally am on medication and doing better.

I still don't overload well on the doom & gloom, but I hope I can get back to reading and helping others.

Thanks for the wonderful welcome backs. Congrats to all those with great news. I think two family members, one 31 and one 80, have strokes sent me over the edge mentally. Being that depression is a battle we fight as diabetics, and then it runs in my family, it just all came down on me like a brick. I still panic, but am learning to move away and stop the attacks. I get so over whelmed and just want to be normal - please one day, just 24 hours - but alas, this is my new normal!

Nice to hear you are doing better. I had panic attacks some years ago too. I think it was the worry about my current health at the time.

Welcome back Jolene
Diabetes is only one of my health issues. I can't afford to be gloom and doom. I just do what I need to do and whatever happens after that I have no control over. I usually do well with, occasional setbacks. When that happens I just get up and go on. It helps to not take myself too serious and keep a positive attitude.

WELCOME Back Jolene!

As red flower said below, there is always going to be a mixed bag here. There are some really sad situations and there are some really encouraging discussions. And you are free to pick and choose which discussions and threads you read.

I got some good news today from my kidney Dr: My kidneys are doing well enough that I don't have to go back on dialysis for another 2 months! Praise the Lord!

I pray God't best for you and yours Jolene!
