The following Questions are taken from the DSMA Tweet Chat
Q1. Do you know anyone that has experienced both diabetes and depression? What were the signs/symptoms?
No I don’t know anyone with Diabetes who’s experienced depression as well
Q2. Once you recognized symptoms (in yourself or others), how did you cope? What kinds of support were most helpful? (Peers? HCPs?)
I have no idea since its not something I’ve experienced so can’t speak of the matter
Q3. What resources can you recommend for those experiencing depression and diabetes? List your favourites, and why they work for you.
Well obviously one should seek medical help regardless to help get the right treatment for them (which means seeing ones GPs and getting a referral to what ever secondary person is necessary).
Q4. What can we do for each other when we see signs/symptoms? What would you want someone to do for you?
No idea outside of following what medical help has said to do on the matter – for my own part if you are in the know about what my medical team has said then you already know what to do for me, other wise its called leave it the world alone.
