    Wellness Wednesday: Diabetes & The Holidays

    Ah, the holiday season!

    Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Year’s Day..

    This time of year is filled with celebrations which can be very exciting! The celebrations can, however, also be stressful for those of us with diabetes, particularly when it comes to managing our conditions and staying on track.

    My fellow advocate, Nikki, shares 5 ways to stay on track during this season:

    Motivational Monday: The Real Definition Of Strength

    “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.”

    Weightlifters don't gain strength by lifting lighter weights. In order to gain strength, a weightlifter lifts heavier weights every session, slowly increasing the amount each time.

    Overcoming difficult obstacles and situations builds strength.

    So the next time your thoughts overwhelm you and you wonder if you can endure any longer, remember that by taking one day at a time you will stay on track and thrive.

    Keep your focus on achieving one diabetes management goal at a time.

    Share an example of something unhelpful or harmful someone has said to you when discussing your CFS.

    Sharing your experiences with others about living with chronic fatigue syndrome can be incredibly validating, but sometimes other people’s reactions can be disappointing and hurtful (even if done unintentionally).

    Have you been told something unhelpful or harmful when talking to others about your CFS? How did you respond?
