Hello Everyone!

It has been such a long time since my last post! (Which was just a corny animation, mind you). I think a part of me avoids coming back to TuDiabetes for fear of discovering my current weaknesses. But I also always know that venting my frustrations and worries never goes unseen or misunderstood. That is the beauty of this site.

Aside from Diabetes, my life is all over the place. Just started my second semester of Archaeology and Anthropology and because…

Hi Everyone :)

I hope you are all well. I just wanted to shed a bit of positivity. I know a lot of people have seen me struggle, so i believe it is my job to also motivate everyone in the way they have for me :)

I am currently doing full time University and two causal jobs. I have assignments coming out of my ears and some of my circumstances at the moment are driving me absolutely insane. And all of this combined would usually send my diabetes to the fiery depths of hell. BUT.…

February query: What would you do with a diabetes-free day?

February query: What would you do with a diabetes-free day?

Hello all,

I would probably exercise and exercise some more. A lot of people would probably eat cake and lollies and sweets and their favorite food of choice. But what frustrates me the most about Type 1 Diabetes, is the fact that I cannot exercise without going…

You make parenting so easy my sweetie. You are an inspiration to the whole family and have allowed us to climb the enormous mountain with you. You have a family that loves and supports you within our understanding but you have joined a family that truly understands you to the core. Joining them is your first baby step to 'finding yourself' because of what you have in common. Just reading all the support brought tears to my eyes because as you know, if I could, I would swap places with you in a blink but I cant and I know that these beautiful people will be able to carry you and makes sense to you where we cant. We constantly admire your inner strength my girl and look forward to watching your progress as you enter this journey. Love you so very much my chicken:) Mom (PS) thank you T1 friends. We love you too...

Welcome to TuDiabetes! Check out some of the groups -- it's a great way to get to know the community. Diabetes is definitely linked with depression and anxiety. I know that first hand. There are a number of groups on here that are specifically focused on people with depression. But you can always ask for information on the general forum too. You and I were diagnosed pretty close to the same time -- I was February 2008.
