Sometimes a long term challenge, like diabetes, just tires you out, leaving you overwhelmed, frusterated or sad. When this happens it is time to take action. Emotional and physical health are so closely connected that you can't afford to not figure out what's getting you down and how to pull yourself back up again.
1. Talk to your Dr/or diabetes educator-there's no reason to go it alone.
2. Get active with online support-ask questions.
3. Exercise whether you feel like it or not- this will lead to a significantly improved mood for you.
4. Can't figure out what's eating at you-you are irritable, feel sad, can't shake a feeling of gloom? STOP- Ask yourself are you Hungry, Angry, Lonesome, Tired? If it's been too long since you ate your last meal, your blood sugar might be low. If you are angry-find out why; Lonely-call a friend-Did you get enough sleep? Being overly tired can sure throw your mood.Check it out!!
