The beginning of this year I join a support group to share my experience and to ask question if any one had a similar experience that they could share. Not a group of advice, giving do gooders. Yes I said do "gooders" I asked " I have been wondering if people taking anti psychotics medication and have become diabetes have different challenges" I got people sharing stay away from drama, don't dwell on it, Bah Bah. If someone write in you have no idea why they take anti psychotic meds, why they suffer from depression would it make a different if you knew my child died of Cancer and then my husband commit suicide. Would you tell a mother or wife not to dwell on it or don't be around drama. I guess that I need to report back to my psy group that don't brother joining a web site of "Quote" normal people they will walk in your shoe before looking at the path you followed. hopefully you re think your advice share your strengths, support the newbie with your knowledge or fact, Or just say I don't know but I am here for you… Bye

Jude, I don't think anyone who responded to your initial question did it to offend you. I certainly didn't intend to do that. You are angry with people who are just everyday people with their own struggles and problems. If you are having bouts of depression, the only person who can help you with that is a trained therapist.

You asked if medication caused diabetes. Only a doctor can answer that. Medical questions should be referred to those who are trained to answer them. You didn't share in the last post what you shared in this one. What a person shares is up to them however, you don't get angry because you don't get the responses you want. Sometimes you have to clarify what you posted.

You can't expect people to walk your path or a mile in your shoes if you don't tell the entire story. When you want people to walk your path or walk a mile in your shoes, you also have to walk with them to help and guide you along the way. You can't put them in your shoes or on your path and leave them guessing or stranded. You also can't expect people to hold your hand because you have a problem. What happened in your life had to have been hard for you. Did you seek Grief Counseling to help you with that? Finally people have a right to their opinions. You and only you can choose to accept or not accept the opinion and you and only you can choose to seek help if you need it. Getting angry at others isn't the best way to go when you are the one who needs the help.

Hmm.. why is there a badge that this site gives out when you like and 'dislike' threads? because honestly this is the first time id like to dislike something. WE dont owe you anything. we have our own opinions and we can say whatever we want. realize that obviously everyone who is diagnosed with diabetes or ANY disease or other health issues are are depressed/stressed, etc. we are all going through struggles.what you really need is to see a therapist.

dear Jude, i take an anti-psycotic med called Latuda. I have bipolar disorder. this med helps to balance me from the depression and manic part of bipolar. right now i am well medicated and can concentrate on being diabetic and all the challenges i have to face. i hope you are well.

Sorry Jude that we offended you. At least for me, it was not intentional, and from what I remember I got the sense that no one intended to diss you at all.

Please reconsider leaving, as I think that there is more to us here than just a bunch of "gooders". I believe sticking around for at least a little bit could be beneficial for you. There have been brusied feelings with others previously and I know (because they told me) that NOT leaving because of someone said something which struck them wrong was a good move for them, and they became a major contributor for on this website for a while.

Just like any public forum there are people of all kinds. some are kindly and some are like "dutch uncles", a bit cantankerous but well meaning.

I pray you decide to give us another chance.

I am very sorry if I offended you with my response. I did not mean to make it sound like advice, I only was trying to share how I got through my tough times without medicine, and I wanted to make sure you knew that stress can take a toll on your BG numbers. I wasn't trying to be rude at all.

You don't come to a public forum expecting expert psychological or medical help. And becoming a drama queen will only make people pass this post by.

I am sorry for all you've been thru and going thru. But really, i think you wouldve gotten better responses if your original post had the info on the reasons for your depression. All these people on this site only want to help. Im not on any depression meds. So i cannot comment as to their effects on bs. But i do know that stress does raise bs. Good luck and hope you can see the caring and love in these responses.
