I have been having issues for some years now. I am a type 1 diabetic who was diagnosed at the age of six. I manage my diabetes quite well and have not been admitted into hospital for many years now. I developed insulin resistance which means i need to take three extra tablets twice a day. No biggy. I have joint pain in my wrists, hips and feet but a paracetamol usually sorts it out. Again, no biggie. When i changed high schools to complete my last two years of education, i was emotionally unstable and diagnosed with depression. I was given anti-depressants as an easy way out for my doctor, maybe, i believe so anyway. I had some cognitive behavioural therapy and that seemed to help. I managed to go and survive university and achieve a 2.1 BA with hons and made one or two new friends. Looking back, i was a bit reclusive, but maybe thats because my 11 housemates enjoyed long nights of hard partying with drugs. A few cocktails in a bar was more my style, or a cheesy kareoke night. Now i am in a stable relationship and working in customer services abroad, i feel quite independant and strong. However, over the last few years, i feel i have lost the plot a bit. I now forget simple words on a regular basis and when on the telephone to a client, i often freeze and cannot form a coherent sentence. My job is simple - just giving information for clients on how to use our website, so that is not the issue. I also get distracted during a task and often forget half way through what i am doing. When cleaning my kitchen for example, i stop half way and do something else. For example, i will be putting things into the dishwasher, and then stop before it is finished and start mopping the floor without fresh clean hot water. Its onviously no major concern, but it takes me twice as long as it takes my partner. I get terribly upset with change, but i guess that is common. I recently moved flats and was distraught for days. Getting angry with friends over silly things. They dont know about this post and the things i have been experiencing. I ask the same questions repeatedly maybe three or four times a week (ive been keeping notes). I always make reminders for myself, but i feel that the less that is stored in the front of my mind, the clearer it is to make room for other things. I have no libido at all, which is a 'side effect' of diabetes, but at my age, i am worried about what i will be like in another 10 or 20 years, or after i have children! Sometimes i believe that i asked my partner a question, but it turns out i didn't whih frustrates me awfully. But my partner is a man so maybe he has selective hearing haha! I feel rather silly for asking for advice when there are millions of people in a mich worse stage than i, but at only 24 years old, i at least feel better for writing.
