I am not sure if what I deal with would actually be diagnosed as depression, but now and then the world gets a bit dark for me and I feel a bit lost. I think maybe at times I just get sick and tired of being diabetic. Has depression been a challenge for you?"If you have diabetes — either type 1 or type 2 — you have an increased risk of developing depression. And if you're depressed, you may have a greater chance of developing type 2 diabetes. The good news is that diabetes and depression can be treated together. And effectively managing one can have a positive effect on the other."
