I'm new and just learning to navigate here so I apologize if this question is discussed elsewhere.
I was diagnosed with Type 2 last fall and take Metformin for control. My A1C has gone from 7 to 5.9 and I am slowly losing weight. I feel this is a good start but I'm finding myself confused and overwhelmed by what I should/shouldn't do, the info available, etc. That's pretty normal, right?
The thing I'm wondering is this…I've read and heard that diabetes can lead to depression. I tend to be a pretty positive person but definitely do have some mood swings. They seem to be a bit more severe lately…I'm more sensitive and weepy (UGH!!!). Problem is, I'm not sure if this is normal female mood swings or possibly related to the diabetes.
I don't feel like I'm mentally fighting the diagnosis, but I can be pretty oblivious sometimes. Has anyone else gone through this? Any tips? Hints?
