Get your Dr to: aggressively treat your diabetes to get your sugars under control. Then get your hernias repaired. See your Dr or a Psychiatrist to treat the depression-you can talk to one here on Health Tap-Dr. Michelle Ward.

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
