Type 1 Diabetes and chronic depression
I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 7 years ago at the age of 47 years. I have suffered with depression since I was a teenager. I have been on medications off and on for most of my adult life. When I stop the meds, all I do is cry and I cannot stay out of bed. I hold down a full-time job as a RN BN and I feel like I am always a fake. At work, most days I can do an effective job. As soon as I get home I let my true emotions out and confide in my husband. I am using an insulin pump for my diabetes. With stress, my blood sugars go into the very high teens (Canadian Values). Does anyone have recommendations to help me?
