Depression is like a black hole.

It can take the joy out of life, drain your energy and motivation, and cause you to feel hopeless and worthless.

Even worse, depression can make the tasks required to manage diabetes seem much more difficult and, therefore, may seriously hurt your long-term health.

There are many reasons why someone might develop depression. Sometimes it may
be related to diabetes, sometimes not. In either case, when you combine diabetes and
depression, it is a very toxic mix.

But there is good news:

This booklet was designed to help you understand depression and how it may be linked to diabetes. By learning these ten important facts, you take an important step toward feeling good again.

So hang in there!

WOW Mays,

This pdf is going in my resources list to use when a depressed, suicidal and bipolar person comes on DC, and I have been talking to a few of them recently by PM.

Thanks so much for finding this and sharing this with us!
