I was trying to post a comment on this article, but gave up in despair. (ironic). Anyway, this is what I wanted to say: Well... at least there is a recognition now that the physical can impact the mental and vice versa. though we are a long way away from parity of esteem. My Type 1 went completely out of control when I was facing huge work stress, which then triggered depression and anxiety. Which worsened as I fought to stop the hypos and hypers - I had specialist support from excellent nurses at Salford, but we could not get my blood sugars under control. After one particularly bad work day, I had four really bad hypos in a single day, for no apparent reason - apart from stress and anxiety. It made me want to kill myself and end it all, I was so exhausted by the constant yo-yo-ing of my blood sugars and worried and frustrated and anxious from it all. In the end, we thought we could directly relate a hyper, or a hypo to an external factor - anxiety, stress, worsening depression. Things got very bleak and extremely black, at least partly because of the loss of control over my Type 1. I got caught in a vicious spiral...and the rest is history.
