JDRF Greater Dallas is excited to share with you a new online resource from the Behavioral Diabetes Institute (BDI) in San Diego, CA. In addition to services offered at their center in Southern California, BDI is also committed to providing online support resources. Visit the BDI website to learn more.
Depression is like a black hole. It can take the joy out of life, drain your energy and motivation, and cause you to feel hopeless and worthless. Even worse, depression can make the tasks required to manage diabetes seem much more difficult and, therefore, may seriously hurt your long-term health.
There are many reasons why someone might develop depression. Sometimes it may be related to diabetes, sometimes not. In either case, when you combine diabetes and depression, it is a very toxic mix.
But there is good news: this booklet was designed to help you understand depression and how it may be linked to diabetes. By learning these ten important facts, you take an important step toward feeling good again. So hang in there!
You CAN overcome depression, handle diabetes more successfully and feel much, much better again.
