June 20, 2008, Newsletter Issue #159: Grief and Coping with Diabetes

Tip of the Week

Diabetes, like many other chronic diseases, impacts not only your physical body, but also your self-image. With change - even positive change - comes a period of adjustment.

Feeling symptoms of grief and depression is a normal response to being diagnosed with a serious disease or a significant change in your life. Diabetes is both of these.

Seek help from a professional to process the grief. A qualified counselor or Social Worker can help you identify the core components of your grief, and assist you in identifying ways to get through it.

Taking baby steps will help you develop new ways to cope with this big change, and get through your grief, is an important part of your diabetes treatment. Baby steps may be small, but they still get you there!
