Being angry because you were diagnosed with diabetes is natural.
You must learn how to channel this anger into a productive, problem solving solution that benefits you, and those whom you love.
Diabetes is terrible, yet it’s a disease that can be dealt with, it can be (and must be) managed.
Being angry does more harm to you than good.
It causes your life to become stressful, that stress extends itself into your personal relationship with your family, friends, and loved ones.
(Stress can also cause your blood glucose level to rise!)
It can also prevent your problem solving skills from being initialized at a time when they are needed the most.
When we are angry, we don’t always “hear” what needs to be heard, “see” what needs to be seen, or “say” what needs to be said!
(Instead we become reactionist to our uncontrolled, emotional anger)
Anger will prevent you from successfully managing your diabetes, you should be totally focused on managing your diabetes, many different types of methods may have to be tried before the right solution is found for you, being angry will delay this process.
Think about where you are channeling your energy and your time, convert it from a “negative” stage into a “positive” one.
Learn as much as you can about diabetes, what it is, what it does, what you can do to manage it successfully.
You have moved beyond the stage of denial, now it’s time to distance yourself from the anger, and the negative effects that will always accompany it.
It is, and will always be to “your” benefit to do so!
