The emotional reality of living with diabetes
Some days will be harder than others to manage diabetes. All those feelings, the frustration, anger, sadness and even the denial, are all normal. For anyone who is battling a life-changing disorder like diabetes, it’s important to remember that they will never be alone. Support is out there and it doesn’t matter if it comes from family, friends or perfect strangers. What does matter is accessing those support systems and dealing with all the emotions that are tied to the disease. Diabetes is not a disease that can be ignored, nor is it one that can be treated alone. Support, especially emotional support, is essential to living a quality life with diabetes.
