Back in November of 2006, I thought "what else could happen to me" when I found out I had Type II Diabetes. Two days ago I was diagnosed with having Adult ADHD. Talk about having your whole life change. For 4 years, the Adult ADHD clouded my mind and did not let me realize the true extent of my neglect of coping with my type II diabetes. I think I had become a true Walter Mitty. Coping with diabetes is hard enough. Trying to cope with it and having your brain try and stop you is a whole other issue.
I have joined so many websites, such as this one, over the last four years, searching for support which was always available to me, yet the ADDult did not let me fully utilize the vast resources that were available. I was getting so depressed and frustrated with myself. I can not even begin to tell you what it was doing to me wife. I ignored the warnings my body was giving me. Diabetes and Adult ADHD are truly a deadly combination.
If the are others out there suffering from these two diseases, please post a reply and let me know how you are dealing with this, or maybe you me need support with dealing with this. Also, look forward to future posts as I progress in dealing with these two major tag-alongs of my life.
Take care and do good things!
