I am 22 and I just got diagnosed with type 1 in early January. The first couple months I was doing well with coping and my diet and exercise and feeling pretty good. The last week or two I’ve been feeling some depression and anxiety and odd feelings of cloudiness and slight pains in my head more occasionally and a pressure in the back of my head and ear occasionally. My numbers are pretty good, not many highs or lows because of pretty good diet and my recent Dexcom has helped and my endocrinologist and diabetic educator says she never sees this many consistent good numbers. Is this normal? I was also told i have a slightly fatty liver and TMJ so it could be related to these things but I am unsure. I have cut out my marijuana usage completely and my alcohol usage almost entirety and now to be completely as they make me feel hazy or heavy and generally not very good anymore. I am constantly afraid that I might have something else wrong with me. I am also constantly being told to breath and calm down its probably nothing and that helps in the short term but I cant help but worry after awhile. And with all the covid-19 concerns going around and me being in Washington where it seems to be pretty bad i don’t feel comfortable going to a doctor and risking my life for what could be nothing, but I’m afraid it could be something like brain cancer or MS and finding this earlier rather then later could save my life. I have always tried to be optimist but in these trying times it just is hard. Any insight would really give me some peace of mind.
Many thanks from,
