I am NOT a doctor, dietician or expert. Do I know everything there is to know about diabetes? Heck no, but I do know what it’s like to live with it.

Moving forward by looking back
Have you ever had a dream where
you’re trying to get somewhere and you just can’t seem to reach your
destination?You can see it off in the
distance but the path isn’t clear.You
might even be moving in slow motion.That’s what depression feels like to me.
Life has been rough lately.The interesting thing about this funk is that
it has absolutely nothing to do with my diabetes.In fact, I rarely think about my D lately.That could be a bad thing but it hasn’t been
too much of an issue.My eating habits
have changed so much over the years that I’m on auto-pilot when I eat and my
choices are “ok”.(I can still snack too
I could have just ridden out
this episode of depression without saying anything but it has caused me to lose
interest in blogging.Heck, it’s caused
me to lose interest in just about everything. I’ve decided to take a
hiatus.I need to focus on the things
that are causing my low mood and fix them, if I can.There are lots of other bloggers out there
and you can read their stuff.If you
just found my blog, I hope you’ll go back and read some of my earlier
posts.I’ve been at this for a few years
now and I’ve had things to say, some of which might help you.Ya never know.
Depression is a serious thing
that isn’t talked about very often.I
don’t have chronic depression but this bout is serious enough that I’m going to
seek help.I need an ear; an ear that
isn’t involved. There is no shame in admitting that you need help.I hope that anyone reading this who deals
with depression will seek help, if needed.
See you around…down the road.

someone who’s depressed, please resolve never to ask them why. Depression isn’t
a straightforward response to a bad situation; depression just is, like the
weather.” Stephen Fry
