Like "Interesting topic Carol! I developed Type 1 diabetes 36 years ago, several months after I had separated from my first husband. I often thought the stress and separation may have been a factor. Last December 23, I was diagnosed with depression after crying nearly all month. Needless to say, my blood sugars went wacko. After starting on some antidepressants, I'm coping better and getting back in control. So yes, stress definitely makes it harder to control our diabetes. The key is to deal with stress without dis-stress!"
