Its been almost 30 yrs I have had Type 1 Diabetes and for 15 of them I have had a condition of mental disturbance. So what does that mean? For the last 15 years I have suffered, no, survived depression. I don't believe that I suffer from it. I live with it and I manage. But for these 15 years why hasn't my diabetes management included this "disturbance". It wasn't until the last 3-4 years when my specialist introduced the idea that until "I FIX ME", my diabetes will suffer and so will I. I have 2 children and a wonderful wife. I want a wonderfully long marriage and I want to see my children grow up.
My point is, like it says above, no manage out there for diabetes is successful if the patient themselves is not in the right frame of mind.
Is diabetes mental for you?
