How do you accept being a diabetic?

You can live a long, healthy life with diabetes. See a diabetes education and care specialist. Do things like walking, dancing, or stretching to help you manage stress and feel better. Smile and laugh.

Laughing helps eliminate negative feelings. Do things you enjoy, such as reading, doing crafts, or talking with friends. Try to relax. It can help you feel calmer. For example, take slow and deep breaths.
