2. Join a Support Group
Whether you attend a gathering in your local community center or clinic, or simply tap into the virtual community of diabetics online, staying in tune and in touch with other people is a major advantage. For one, you’ll have access to moral support and confidence-boosting conversation whenever you need it, and when you live with a chronic disease, these moments are bound to pop up.
Secondly, you can learn helpful tips and important lessons from people who have lived and struggled with diabetes for a long time, which can be just as valuable as any other resource that offers diabetes facts and figures.
