I Understand Your Struggle


Managing Diabetes is hard. Hard to do it perfectly. Hard not to feel sad, depressed, angry and resentful. I’ve found a solution. And it’s one a doctor can’t help with.

Of course you need to understand how to manage blood sugars, but there is so much more to living well with diabetes.  If willpower was all it took, you’d be doing it already – right?
