46 years old and Dealing with amputations and diabetes type 2 and depression

Posts: 0
 am an Avon Representative doing the best I can. I have been disabled now for about 3years. I find it hard to be happy now days being that the Diabetes type 2 is such an aggressive and vindictive disease. Meaning wherever you are in your stages of prevention and or treatment. Diabetes seems to punish your body for the time it was not being treated or controlled and for what you are going thru. Here is my problem with it. I am no fool I realize per your economic status determines the information and preventive medicines given to handle this. I also know that when they don't know what to do with you then they place the blame back on the patient. I cannot fight this thing alone and it seems worse than cancer and aids combined. I joined this org to see if I can network with others to deal and handle this diabetes type 2 any better my resources are limited and I don't know how to tell my roommate that what you are doing is killing me slowly, She is my mother. Also in the same breath have a strong desire to kick diabetes in the ass so that I can live finally get to walk down the aisle of my wedding holding my father's arm. live without depression. sorry to say that this has been building since I was a little girl so that's enough about me or at least how I feel today

Hi Queenlashique,

So glad you found DiabetesSisters and decided to connect with us online.  I'm sorry this has been such a tough journey, but know you are not alone.  Having a support system is so important in managing your diabetes and it helps to have others who can understand what you're going through because they are also on the same journey.

DiabetesSisters has monthly PODS (Part of DiabetesSisters) meetups across the country that give women a chance to come together, share their successes and challenges, learn from each other and the resources as part of our PODS resource kit.  You can find a list of PODS online here:  https://diabetessisters.org/pods-meetups.

Hope this helps and try to stay encouraged.
