Your A1C is well managed but understand you want to get it even lower.

I had a double vascular bypass to help me heal. I still have abdominal pain in the groin where the the plastic tube went in. Is this normal?

I was diagnosed with type 2 around June, and didn't see a Dr about it until beginning of Aug. I had 2 wounds on my toes and a big one on my ankle that I thought were all from having toe fungus, and she ordered me to the hospital. I'm still not sure what caused the wound on the ankle, but I've had it for a long time. My diabetes was undiagnosed/untreated for God only knows how… read more

Has anyone had suicidal thoughts because of all the frustration and emotional roller coaster ride that diabetes gives us?

Has anyone had suicidal thoughts because of all the frustration and emotional roller coaster ride that diabetes gives us?

Just tired of it all! 400 dollars a month of meds that I can’t afford. Trillium doesn’t work because apparently we’re not poor enough. Our deductible is high and it makes it not worth it.
Feel like the Doctor and dietician are just keeping me on the back burner.
I haven’t slept in 36 hours cause the neuropathy in my feet is painful.
Just seem to be out of options.

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

Yes but then I think of others. Get myself busy and be happy. Not staying negative but keeping myself moving forward. We all have that rough… read more
