Survival is almost the core for the ‘need’ for educating diabetics. Other reasons are to ensure a longer life, improve the quality of life and reduce the cost of diabetes care. The World Health Organization even affirmed in some publication that "Education is a cornerstone of diabetic therapy and fundamental to the integration of the diabetic to society’s consciousness."
I myself is living each day with cheerful spirit from the day I finally accepted my condition; and I must admit that it’s through reading materials re: diabetic info’s and personal stories of endurance that boost up my self-assurance that I can still live okay – it may not be the best situation but enough to appreciate Life.

I agree that education is key. And our healthy eating and exercise habits will be a good role model for our children to lead healthy lifestyles, too. Thanks.

Without doubt we are a great influence to our children, for they see things from us in the household. Early trainings (i.e. healthy lifestyle, etc.) are substantial in the formation of their habits.

I think each of us have it in us to survive. That's why we are here to be with people who are like minded and can help us find the tools to move from survival mode into thriving mode. Keeping that cheerful spirit helps so much, and I am glad that you are able to see it that way. People like you are inspiring.
