Yes, I too had help from Mental Health services for many years. But I came to the conclusion that after so many years of struggle, I had learnt quite enough to go it on my own. I think mental health workers come in all sorts and sizes, and sometimes can be actually very harmful. Anxieties levels and depression can actually be exacerbated by having to deal with Type 1, as has happened in certain ways for myself, but really with this illness, no one else is really able practically to help very much it seems, so I have felt finally, it really is all up to me, and I cannot expect much help from others - most of the professionals ---whether mental health or diabetes professionals, don't seem to be as useful to me as I am to myself now!!!
