Thank you for reading and responding! Unseen illnesses are very hard to deal with most of the time. I use gallows humor to get by as best I can. I did 2 injections with syringes starting in 2010 until late 2016 year with medium acting insulin. I was Type 2 until 9/22 of last year. I finally saw an endocrinologist for the first time. She had me use pens for long-acting and fast-acting insulin. She was basically training me for my pump.

Anyways you can read that on earlier posts. Man, a brain tumor! I can’t even imagine that. I feel for you and have an idea of what you must be going through. My mental health had really become an issue more lately than when I was MS diagnosed. I guess my resistance to accepting and dealing with any type of real depression was delayed by being busy with learning the about my MS and what it might have to do with my diabetes. I still wonder what autoimmune issue I might have that might cause both MS and T1 diabetes.

Thank you for supplying me with fun posts to take my mind off things. I hope you can stay health and strong too. Knowing that there are people that are dealing with health and mental health issues makes it easier. We are all the same the more we learn about each other. We just have to drop all guard against appearing weak or less than others. No ego has always been a goal in life.
