DIABETES and DEPRESSION

I do not know much medical terms, I had DIABETIES. And now I not somehow good.
medication continues..., don't know how to get rid Of, but I cannot say accurate about my health.
My parent's efforts could not be successful. Depression ,perhaps we will become very sad, then what will we do, do not do anything wrong.
Now maybe we can't think of anything. That's why we always have to be busy, depression comes quickly due to being empty,
I am in depression therapy since last 25 days from

But I know that now my old days can never come back, everything has changed, my face, my voice.
Now I have to learn to live like this or else I can go into a lot of depression, and I am afraid not to do anything wrong.

  1. Unfortunately, there is no cure for diabetes. Once you are diagnosed with it, you will have diabetes for life. However, it can be treated and controlled through diet, exercise, and medication. It is a slow, continual process to learn to live with T2D. Slow and steady wins the race. Do not try to make all the changes you need to make all in one fell swoop. That is overwhelming for anyone. Choose one small step and acclimate to that before adding in other changes.

    Depression is something that many people with chronic conditions face, T2D included. Here is an article I recently wrote with some tips for dealing with T2D and depression: https://type2diabetes.com/living/depression-tips.

    1. Sadly there is not cure but it can be controlled! Stay strong and hang in there.

      1. I am sorry to hear that you're having a tough time. And I absolutely understand that things may seem a little overwhelming right now. But you have an excellent learning opportunity before you! You're not only in a forum where there are many people who are supportive, but you also have access to abundant resources, information, and services to help you control this situation - and that is a very empowering thought! My father and brother both contracted T2D and I observed and learned a lot from their experiences. And I want to help others through their journey also. Daily exercise and morning meditation are just a couple of simple and free methods that can easily be implemented that can improve your mood.

        Be persistent! Take things one day at a time, and you'll definitley have your situation under control before you realize it 😀
        Good luck my friend!
