As long as you choose not to accept this disease you are going to feel the way you are feeling. If you continue to be stressed and depressed, you are going to be alone. No one will want to be around you.

In order to be a mature adult, you have to make choices in life. You also have to make choices and you have to be responsible for the choices you make. You did not choose to be diabetic, it chose you. At this point in your life you have to look to the future. What do you want to do with the rest of your life? Where would you like to go in your travels? What do you want to accomplish?

If you feel alone, you choose to feel that way. You put yourself in the rut you are in by not saying "I have diabetes, now what am I going to do about it?"

The choice is yours, you are either going to have to accept diabetes, learn all you can about it through self education, talking to your doctor, attending a diabetes education class, meeting with a nutritionist, testing, eating healthy and adding exercise. The sooner you do this the better. The longer it takes to not accept it the longer it takes to begin taking care of yourself. I choose to accpet and take care of my diabetes. I like having both legs, all my toes, both arms, all my fingers, my vision and functioning organs. You have to make a choice. Not one person on this site can do that for you. Good luck to you.

Unfortunately it is a chronic illness that you're forced to think about everyday! It's been almost 8 months for me & it's getting much easier. Good Luck & remember to keep your head up!!

Sherelle, I am not one of the people who are forced into thinking about diabetes everyday. When you do this you get into a rut that you may never climb out of. Diabetes is not a death sentence. You can live your life the same as before as long as you change your health habits.

I was the same way, it made me depressed and angry. Cause it was never off my mind. It would really stress me out. It made me snappy and just anxious all the time. Then I membered that I can breath and take hold of my own fate.

You can make this get better and make it a little easier on yourself. Just make little goals and reward yourself for completing them. At first for me it was simply sticking to a meal schdule. Now it's getting 10,000 steps a day.

Record what you've done so you can have proof to remind yourself that you have done well. Never stop trying even when you have a bad day.

This site has been helpful to me because while I have the support of my Hubby and family. It reminds me that I'm not the only one who feels down or who just feels all alone sometimes. It's been really wonderful to have a site like this one. Just don't stop fighting, you can still live and be happy while being a diabetic. :)
