Diabetes Distress

“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.
