No one blinks an eye with gestational diabetes. It happens, and you need to medically manage it. Some mamas go on insulin for the duration of the pregnancy. Big deal, right?

But OMG!! Depression! That means you are crazy!!!!

Good luck! Really. Depression is tough to deal with, especially becasue of the stigma we and others attach to it.
