No, not all Type 1 diabetics suffer from Depression, but we are twice as likely to have this problem as non-diabetics. You need to get help for your Depression, Leotha. Please contact your local Behavioral Health organization and get a full Assessment after which, if you do have clinical Depression a therapist will talk with you as to whether medication, therapy or most likely a combination of the two will work best for you.
To put it bluntly, by not bolusing for meals and continuing with high blood sugars you are putting yourself at risk of serious complications and even risking death. Someone in your life cares about you and doesn't want to see this happen. But when you have Major Depressive Disorder you may be literally unable to do what you need to do to care for your Type 1. So you need to get treatment for the Depression and then you will be able to slowly start to do what you need to do for your D. Please don't wait to get assessed and treated!
I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. How long have you been diabetic? If you've recently been diagnosed, i think it's normal to go through a mourning period so to speak. It's a lot to take in, and certainly a lot of changes. The good new is, it DOES get better! Hang in there & feel free to message me if you ever want to talk!
