  1. Hi! I am new to this site. I had no idea this place existed and I'm honestly glad I found it. I am 24 years old and I have been a Type 1 Diabetic since I was 5. I have basically lived with this my whole life and I have never been "normal". My father was a HUGE help for me because he also had diabetes. I was very close with him (most definitely a daddy's girl). He had MANY complications from poor treatment and he sadly passed away in February 2003 from his heart failing in recovery after surgery. Ever since then, my depression has only gotten worse. Through out the years I went to therapy for a short time. But along with growing up & having no one else "like me" around to help and understand. I felt very alone (still do). I've self-harmed myself on and off for years, my last time sadly being some time last year. I also don't take care of myself very well when it comes to my diabetes. I just want to be normal and worry free. I just haven't seen the point in trying to take care of myself. I don't want to P**k and stab myself multiple times a day, every day. I don't want to have to think about how my EVERY move/choice will effect me and my diabetes. Cause that's how things are now. This has caused me to start having neuropathy symptoms (SHARP, extremely painful stabbing pains in my feet/hands/body). Because of this and my depression, my doctor put me on 30mg of Cymbalta. While it has helped me greatly for the neuropathy, I don't feel it is helping my depression and anxiety anymore. I can't really talk to my friends because they don't understand how hard diabetes can really be. I mainly would just like to know if any other diabetics out there are struggling just as much as me and are feeling just as alone as me.
