Like "Maria - so sorry for the loss of your husband. I don't have diabetes, but my 10 year old daughter was diagnosed 2 years ago. We had lost my mother-in-law in June and my brother in Feb. so when she was diagnosed in Apr. we were really stressed and overwhelmed. Thank God she is a great kid and takes things in stride. She has made it easier for us all to cope. Fortunately, diabetes is a disease that is very managable. At the same time, changes in blood sugar definitely affect your moods and behavior. That's why it is so important to follow a good diet and monitor your levels. When my daughter gets low she will often get very whiny and sensitive and cry very easily. If you have type 2, there is a strong chance you can be healed from it. Are you overweight? If so, join a gym or take some type of exercise class. Losing weight is the best thing for those with type 2 diabetes. Also, change your eating habits. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables and you'd be surprised how much better you feel. You might want to take a daily vitamin too. Whatever you do, don't isolate. My mother-in-law did that and spent that last five years of her life virtually alone. If you have children and/or grandchildren spend time with them and let them help you. If you're still working, talk to your HR dept. about wellness benefits. Many companies help pay for gym memberships or provide counseling to their employees. Also, if you have alot of spare time, volunteer. Nothing makes you feel better than helping others. I know I'm rambling, but I hope this helps. Good luck and God bless."
