How Did U Feel When You Were Diagnosed


i am an artist studying at sheffield hallam university, uk, recently I have become interested in exploring diabetes in my work, I have already ceated one piece called "whats the point in living anymore?"

I actually did ask myself that question when I was first diagnosed at the age of 12, so that piece is very personal to me, but I am interested to know what sorta questions other people asked themselves, and how they felt when they were first diagnosed.

Your help would be much appreciated, as would any comments on the piece I have already done.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Most people are in denial phase on diagnosis.
Some people go into depression. There are different myths regarding diabetes mellitus that have made people sick.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
