“If your medicine cabinet is busting at its seams with diabetes supplies, it may be time for you to find a better organization method. Here are some practical tips on keeping your supplies at the ready without being overwhelmed by them.”
“Living with diabetes can feel like a full-time job. For some, the stress of self-managing their diabetes can take an emotional toll.
According to a 2009 Diabetes Care article by psychologists William Polonsky, Lawrence Fisher, et al., “Living with diabetes can be tough. In the face of a complex, demanding, and often confusing set of self-care directives, patients may become frustrated, angry, overwhelmed, and/or discouraged. Diabetes-related conflict with loved ones may develop, and relationships with health care providers may become strained. The risk of depression is elevated. As a result, motivation for self-care may be impaired.”

The first piece of advice I can give you is this popular quote, which has become my mantra: “If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten.” In other words, change is essential to making life improvements. The good news is that you don’t need to change everything all at once; small changes make some of the biggest impacts. So, are you ready to change?”
