I have been diagnosed in 2008 to have type 1 diabetes, and have not once been depressed or angry about it. I always looked at it like it could have been worse, or I just look at the cases of 2 year olds that are diagnosed with cancer, and think that I am actually lucky to have a controllable disease. Now I know a lot of diabetics amongst my friends and family members, most of which are type 1 diabetics. Now my question is when talking amongst these other diabetics should I give my opinions on being positive and looking on the brite side or should I just listen and let them vent? A good majority of these people are still angry and maybe even slightly depressed over their diabetes even though they may have had it for 15 years or more. I am not a person that gets easily depressed, sad, or angry about my health, and may only be affected by the health of my kids over my own self.
