It can be very frustrating living with diabetes! Often it feels like a basket that you are dragging behind you, you can never go anywhere without it and you can’t get away from it! There are days that you wish you just did not have to deal with diabetes, deal with the finger stick, the medication, the meal planning! It’s just so overwhelming! It’s frustrating to see your healthcare provider every 3 months and be told your A1C is too high and to “try harder”
Try harder? What the heck does that mean? Try harder at what? Meal planning, exercise, taking more medication, what?? Some suggestions real suggestions would help! Hey, Doc, instead of spending 5 minutes with me and then telling me to “try harder” why don’t you actually help me, why don’t you spend a little time answering my questions instead of rushing out of the room!
If this has been your experience with diabetes, we are sorry, it does not have to be like that, there is a better way! Diabetes is a day at a time, was yesterday good?, then great! Was yesterday bad? Today is a new day!
