You have anxiety. Doesn't mean you have an anxiety disorder per se. Right now, your body's fire alarm, if you will, keeps going off for no reason. There are two ways to get rid of this. One way is to silence it through medication or to turn it off through therapy. The first step for you my friend would be to asses why you are feeling this way. Speak to your family and friends and get insight and support from them. Since I don't know anything about you, I can't suggest why this is happening to you but it could be that you're stressed, repressed, oppressed, lonely ,isolated, relationship problems, school problems, money problems etc etc. At the end of the day you will live.

If self help doesn't work, go to your doctor. Mine really helped me with addressing my anxiety. He made me feel better and gave me some medication to silence the alarm. I will be seeing a therapist this week to try and shut it off completely one day.

Join a cbt group and learn to think more objectively and most if not all of your worries will disappear. If you cannot afford cbt treatment read the book 'been there,done that? Do This! by sam obitz and start doing the TEA form exercise in the book. Chances are you are making a lot of the thinking errors he lists in the book and that is causing your needless worries.

I honestly don't have any experience with diabetes and depression, but I would think since CBT is the most proven treatment that it would at least be useful for it even if it stemmed from diabetes? But I don't know much about diabetes so hopefully someone else on here will have experience with that and chime in.
