Is he/she diabetic? The fact that one is diabetic is very depressive, I had the feeling when I was diagnosed & was had to take diabetic meds, it could happen, one gets over with it in due course of time as one has no choice but to control this ailment, hoe he/she comes out of depression & anxiety, world stats show diabetes is on the increase not because of sugar intake but our eating & living habits which has changed drastically over the years, best of luck, & I wish him/her all the best!

Depression is something we all have.
Where it gets to be a problem, is when we get locked into it. in that case we need medical help.
You would be surprised to know how many people are on some type of depression medicines. some people mite need it for a short time, while others will be on it for life.
You can be depressed for a short time if you have Diabetes, because it's a life changing thing. You start out as type 2 which is the mild form to type 1 witch is the extreme form. There is no cure, and it can kill you.
It's a thing you learn to live with.
