I’ve since learned that diabetes, anxiety and depression can go
hand-in-hand. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. Until last year, when I
was blindsided by anxiety - about work, family, or any number of
things happening in my life. It was helpful to learn from my friends
with diabetes that it was something they had gone through, too.
I’ve also learned from talking to other people with diabetes about
our blood sugar numbers that nobody has perfect numbers. We all
struggle from time to time, and that’s no reason for us to beat
Whether you were diagnosed one month, one year or even one decade
ago, you can be sure there’ll always be something new to learn about
diabetes. Understanding and treatment of the disease continues to
evolve. And, as I get older and my body changes so too does the way I
need to manage my disease. Fortunately, I can count on my friends,
colleagues, and doctors to help show me the way.
