I am a 35 yr old stay at home mom of 5. I have 3 of my own and 2 step kids. I suffer from depression as well as being type 2 diabetic. I have the knowledge to take care of myself just not the motivation. My baby brother, the youngest and the only boy of 5 kids killed himself a year ago on Dec. 12th and it is the worst thing my family has ever been through. With the stress of the kids and my depression I have a really bad habit of skipping meals. I don't take my sugar like I am supposed to and I don't eat right or exercise. I am scared that I am doing damage to my body. My hands and feet are always cold which makes me think my circulation isn't like it should be. I do take meds for the depression, I have just fallen into some bad habits and I don't know how to pull myself out of it! Any advice would be much appreciated!!
