Depressed and alone

Posts: 0
I really do not know what to do anymore.  A1C was 6.3 and I was put on meds. I am under too much stress.  I am having sores that are healing slowly, or not at all.  I am in a marriage that is more stress than help.  I do not know what to do, or where to turn,  A lot of time I feel like giving up.

Brendajc, please dont give up.  You can manage the diabetes.  I'm new to this as well, but we have to keep going and try to get it under control.  Try talking to your doctor about finding a support system in your local area.  There may be a program that can put you in contact with other diabetics in the area.

I so understand- I feel many of those feelings too.  But we can't give up-together we CAN do this.  I went to the dr on Thursday and my blood sugar was over 300.  She gave me an Insulin pen, and after only 4 shots, today my blood sugar has been in the 120's all day!  I am still nervous about my diet, but it can be done.  You are not alone.  YOU CAN DO IT.  YOU ARE WORTH IT.
