The diagnosis of any chronic disease, like diabetes, is always difficult to accept in the beginning. Currently, however it is a condition of which we have a far better understanding and are far better at treating and managing. Certainly the two complications which you encountered, the TB and the bladder infection, are more likely if your glucose readings are high, which it sounds like they were, and so if your keep your levels under control, then they are a lot less likely. They are also both treatable. When your readings are down and the TB is better, then your energy will get better too. Most of my patients feel better about the diagnosis of diabetes when they understand it better, and so get as much information as possible from your doctor. If you are still feeling depressed then would suggest seeing a psychiatrist or psychologist who can help further.
