I was diagnosed 3 years ago and my dad died about 6-8 months later. Its something no one can prepare you for and will take some time to work through.
My diabetes took a back burner to my grieving and I was in denial for 2.5 years. I only recently started to acknowledge the toll it was having on my body and I was very depressed about all the physical symptoms I was having and how many times I was going to the ER. I was having back to back skin infections with staph. It took every ounce of strength I had to get through those moments… But I KNOW if my dad was alive he would have been holding my hand. He was there in spirit instead.

Bad things are going to happen. Unfortunately all we can do is breathe and do the best we can.

We are here to help...if you want to talk. So many of us have lost loved ones also. No grief is the same from person to person, but sometimes finding someone to talk to just makes you feel better. Private emails are available for you if you want to talk.

Grieving the death of a loved one and diabetes at the same time is a double whammy and it's understandable to feel the way you are. I am not saying it's good to stay there, but sometimes we have to let grief take it's course.

Odds are you may be suffering from depression. Been down that road. Thankfully, I don't have that problem anymore. I know you are looking for another doctor but if you still have one, this is the person you should be talking to to get some help.
