I have been very depressed about my diabetes and my life lately. I'm not sure what to do. I have resulted in sabotashing my diabetes to get sick.

As I have said to other posters…you get busy living or you get busy dying. You are in charge of what you eat and drink and of the medication you take. Be your own hero.

Remember you are who is in control of what your future holds and it must be you who makes the commitment that will not be broken. All lives sail through stormy waves but the steady hand and a full sail brings them into smooth waters. Steer your course and hold a steady hand. We all have been in that place and it does get better.

You are worth fighting for to be healthy. Go to your mirror look at the wonderful person staring back at you and tell that person you are worth it. If it is not too cold, go for a walk with some uplifting music. Always helps me get out of my own mind and regroup

I have been there many times. I would get so frustrated that things would not change even when I worked hard, which kind of made me feel like "why bother". I can get stuck there to where I do very poorly, but I know if I want to get better, I have to keep trying. Some days it's not easy...some days it's just not as hard. LOL

I am sorry that you are feeling the self destructive part of it. Just know that you are worth every effort you make. Even the very little ones can sometimes be the steps into the light again.

Do you have a friend or family member that you can buddy up with and confide in? Not to whine with them, but find ways that are fun to help you dig out of your dark place? Sometimes just venting, crying, screaming at diabetes can help.

We are all here to encourage you. Let us know more how we can and we will do our best to help you along.
