The Other Half of Diabetes – #DBlogWeek

We think a lot about the physical component of diabetes, but the mental component is just as significant. How does diabetes affect you or your loved one mentally or emotionally? How have you learned to deal with the mental aspect of the condition? Any tips, positive phrases, mantras, or ideas to share on getting out of a diabetes funk? (If you are a caregiver to a person with diabetes, write about yourself or your loved one or both!)

Like I mentioned yesterday, my daughter doesn’t really like to talk about having Type 1 publicly but with family and friends she is very open and not trying to hide it or be ashamed. I hope that continues. I do worry about her getting depressed or in a funk but I try to stay positive and not dwell on issues. We can only deal with what is going on today.

So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today. Matthew 6:34 (NLT)
