Being diagnosed with Diabetes may bring about many emotions, and it is ok to be upset.

I try to always find the positive in every situation, and for me, the positive part about being a Diabetic is that it is forcing me to be strong and follow through with a healthier lifestyle.

I choose to fight this disease, and challenge myself to keep my blood glucose levels in excellent control.

Stay Informed, Stay Active, Stay Focused, Stay in Control … Live !

You definitely have the right attitude. It is the same one I chose when I was diagnosed. I have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me.

A change of attitude is necessary in order to survive.
Living life with diabetes is a chore, but it doesn't have to be.
I like your phrase "I have diabetes, but diabetes doesn't have me."
