Lack of interest


#1

I have been diabetic for 40+ years and in the last 1-2 years have had some life changing complications to deal with, some unrelated to type 1 diabetes.
I for whatever reason have lost complete and total interest in dealing with it.
I wonder if there is anyone out there that feels, felt, or knows how to overcome this?
I know that ultimately I am not doing myself any favours but would appreciate any help.
Thanks all

No magic wands I’m afraid.

I’m Type 2 and only been at it for 5 years and I have periods when I just can’t be bothered. I know I’m harming myself but can’t seem to get out of it. But I do . . . eventually. Not sure how.

You must be sick and tired of it all after all this time. And find the complications, whatever they are, hard to deal with. I’d say, be kind to yourself; try to make things more comfortable in small ways; indulge yourself a bit if you can.
If you’ve support and care around, use it now. If not, please try to love yourself. Try to get involved in a favourite interest and distract yourself a bit from health issues.
