I had diabetes clinic yesterday. We talked about everything I wanted to except perhaps the most important thing; I’ve been suffering from depression for the past 7 years. Mostly due to diabetes. I’m too scared to mention it because I’ve always appeared so strong and I don’t want to reveal just how insecure I really am. Diabetes, depression; why can’t you just go away?
Sometimes, knowing I have to treat a low, while suffering from low-brain, feels like someone telling a person who just broke their leg to “run for help.” Like, yea, that would be great if I could but then I wouldn’t need to do it in the first place, right?!
