Something I meant to post last week

I stopped by here again because I referred someone to this site and thought I should dust off my page. There really isn't much to say, at least that I should share here vs. letting it just fester in my head. I'll just say it like this: depressed? check. left eye that had bleeding in it, that had been completely fine until today? check. pathetic waste of a life threatening to circle the drain again? check, check, and double check. There, not necessarily a doom and gloom post by ol' Cara, was it? Nah, it just keeps getting better...

Cara,

I'm glad that you're here sharing this with the tudiabetes community. Depression sucks...and at least you're not alone doing this.

I wish I could help in some way (virtual hugs??). If you ever want to talk, message me.

Hey Mike, thanks for the comment, and for the virtual hugs. Just gotta say that "normal," non-diabetic people just don't always understand. I hate to sound like I'm pouting or feeling all sorry for myself or whatever, but...I dunno. Thanks again.

I saw on someones blog once saying you're allowed to have your own pity party every now and again. You shouldn't feel upset because you're not feeling 100% at the moment. I'm new to the Diabetic Online Community but I love it, there's this feeling of reassurance you get when you know someone else gets it. Hope you feel better getting stuff off your chest!

Thanks Shonelle, and welcome to the diabetic online community. I'm kinda new as well, but mostly because I've never quite established myself.
