Hi everyone! I have been gone from this site for a very long time. Since I am going through so much wanted to connect with others and see if I can feel ( a part of a group that understands).
Back in March I was just about to go back to seeing a shrink for my depression and anxiety. I had put it off. Made an appointment then found out my insurance didn't cover it. Then I lost my job.
So right now I get my insurance through the county here in Maryland. I am feeling so hopeless and it is really hard to get out of bed let alone feel optimistic about anything. Can you guys steer me to a discussion here on this site that can give me some hope…? Here is the kicker, my sugar numbers are better NOW that I am unemployed. Go figure…

Don't stop looking for a job. Also if you are single go out dating! A hermit can get very lonely and miserable. Good job on the BS numbers. You cannot buy good health. Do something that makes you happy everyday. It's the little daily delights that keep us going. Personally I like fishing. However just casting a fly fishing line in a park is very relaxing, even better on a body of water. Good luck.

Hi welcome back…I have been on this site about a month or a bit longer. There are some awesome people on this site that can help you much better than I can. I just wanted to say hi and wish you the best. I also wanted to tell you I have read some very helpful discussions some about depression so maybe you can read thru some of those? Glad your sugar levels are showing better numbers. I am not working right now myself.

Reach out to some of the people you see here, they can be very supportive and positive. Whatever you do keep getting out of bed, get to your computer.
