Dealing with diabetes 24 hours a day, seven days a week, can take its toll on your emotional well-being, while stress and negative emotions can take their toll on blood glucose control. It’s common to experience negative emotions such as anger, frustration, hopelessness, fear, guilt and shame which is why taking care of yourself may feel difficult or challenging at times. That’s why dealing with diabetes over the long term requires developing a range of coping skills and techniques, from learning to carry out the daily tasks of diabetes control, to finding ways to deal with the emotions that having diabetes and having to care for it are bound to bring up at time
Eliot LeBow was diagnosed with Juvenile diabetes (Type I) and is the owner of DiabeticTalks, a robust online platform dedicated to helping individuals live a better life.
