I am a fairly new diagnosed diabetic. I am taking Metformin BID and I have been doing really well at keeping my BS in the right range. What I am finding really difficult to handle is my deepening depression and the fact that my family does not understand it. I have a wonderful husband, my children have great jobs and terrific families.....I have no financial worries.....In fact, I have a pretty terrific life and I feel blessed to be so lucky! So why do I feel so depressed?? Some days I feel like crying for no reason at all! I can not seem to motivate myself to do anything and I feel like I am so lazy! I spend my days puttering around the house, reading or watching T.V. and I still am tired at the end of the day. What gives? I am familiar with depression that has a cause....loss of a loved one,life changes,etc so how can I feel depressed when everything is O.K.???? Is it from being diabetic??/ Or from my meds??? Have other people felt this way when there seems to be no real reason? What can I do to ease these dark clouds that I have hovering over my head that only I can see?
