This is a good question Stress is huge issue for me too. Stress weakens our immune system, which t1 already struggles with. I've tried many things already. When I was much younger exercise helped me. Now that I'm older, it helps to talk to someone. Which is not my personality, but its helping. I also meditate and pray for at least 30 minutes a day. Getting away from the world and just spend time with yourself, turn off your phone, computer, tv. Or do something you enjoy. I' only know how to relieve stress according to my personality. I'm an introvert, so I enjoy quiet and staying away from the world once in awhile.

Howdy from "fabulous" Las Vegas, Dwane,

Picture diabetes as a race to health. But this race is not a sprint to the finish line (a healthier you) instead it is a marathon taken with Baby steps! (yes baby steps!)

You know that when babies start walikng on their own their first few steps are hesitant, and sometimes they fall down, but they want to walk so much that they don't stay down long. They get back up and once they get their balanace they increase their steps and pretty soon are running and they are off running around the house. Then they master uneven ground.

Here you have the support of friends to encourage you on! Make use of it regularly!

Praying for better health for you and yours

Mz Tara is 100 percent correct. Just try to take everything 1 day at a time. Each day is a victory. You're going to have bad days once in awhile. We all do. But you're never alone and when you see how much you can accomplish it will motivate you to keep going. Best of luck to you!

No need to stress… just jump into action. Having diabetes to me is like me saving my life over and over again every day. In doing that, I am eating healthier, exercising and am in better shape than I was before I was diagnosed. Once you get the hang of the whole "lifestyle change" you will find yourself in a happier place.
