Do You Feel Frustrated Rather Than Depressed When It Comes To Living With Diabetes?
Here's a question I'd like to put to everyone how many people living with diabetes would say they are more frustrated than depressed when it comes to living with diabetes.
The reason I ask is because I've suffered with depression in the past and the way I feel about my diabetes is totally different to how I felt when I was depressed. I know how to manage my diabetes the problems start when I'm around other people and that's where I start getting frustrated but you try talking to a professional about it and they automatically say you are depressed.
I went for CBT Therapy because I wanted to know how to get people around me to understand the life style changes I have to make in regards to my diabetes without world war three breaking out.
I had had CBT Therapy in the past as it helped me get over my low self esteem this time around it was a total disaster. I had to explain to the therapist why I had to tell those closest to me about my diabetes as she didn't understand why I had to tell them.
She wanted to know what I was like before I became diabetic and I told her my past isn't effecting the way I feel now and to top it all when I told her someone had called me an inconvenience because I had to manage my diabetes she agreed with what the other person had said.
So I never went back and so when it comes to managing my diabetes round other people I feel more frustrated than depressed about especially when there's so much focus about having to get support from those closest to you.
