5 Tips for Staying Positive While Managing Your Diabetes

A diabetes diagnosis is a hard pill to swallow. It takes constant effort, management, and often times, more self control than we think we have. And just when you think you’re finally accepting your diabetes and are managing it pretty flawlessly, you have a bad day that leaves you feeling out of control and helpless. It might even feel as though no matter how long you have diabetes, it will always be difficult… it will always feel like a chore.
