Whether you or a loved one has been diagnosed, diabetes gives us this fear of rejection, failure, judgement, or disappointment. These feelings are all normal but you must not let them take over your life. Diabetes is not a death sentence and a diagnosis is not the end of the world.
Keeping hope and keeping the faith that you are the boss of your diabetes will give you something to live for. Proving to your diabetes that it will not take over your life will be the greatest accomplishment and will help you keep going. Do not let your diabetes define you!
