    With my diabetes diagnosis hanging, my ecg now abnormal, doctors recommending angina medicines inspite loosing weight like 20kgs and my age is just 29.
    Feeling like I am dragging my significant other in this mess too.
    Have forgotten what it is feel normal, so unsure about future, my health what if something new comes up.
    Last 5 years my health has deteriorated so bad it feels like to end life then to live.
    How do I continue living like this!

    One day at a time, as at least you are being looked at, looked after - and you are still young. You have time to get a lot of things sorted out.
    I feel so much better than I did three years ago when first diagnosed, now that I have normal blood glucose levels a lot has got much better.

    Have you spoken to a professional that deals with these issues, like anxiety etc?

    That's the only thing I can think of. Everything is basically one day at a time. One foot in front of the other.
