I found a fantastic site I would like to recommend If you are wondering how you are handling your stress with diabetes , go to this site;
and take the quiz,"Stressed out by Diabetes".click on the link for this quiz, then rate how you feel about diet,medical care,etc.
I scored 40 out of amax of over 100.It is very informative. You will also be told how to handle your situation.

Thanks so much for the great link. I scored a 39. I have a wonderful medical team, but my friends & family don't realize the seriousness of the disease or support me emotionally. That's why I'm here'

My score was also 40, which kind of surprised me. I thought I would have done better because I don't feel stressed. I think what knocked my stress levels up is that I cannot afford a doctor visit, and so I feel like I am missing that part of the treatment....I will have to take it again when I get a doctor that I can see on a regular basis.
