When you have diabetes, it's important to take charge of stress. Learn relaxation techniques, rank tasks in order of importance, set limits, and exercise often to help relieve stress and lower your blood sugar.

Relax

So much of our mental health problems that present themselves as stress, depression, anxiety, insecurity, and fear stem from our desire to control. We fight and fight for things to be the way we think they should be and have some sense of control. But sooner or later we must realize that nothing is in control. You must let life flow. How are you doing with giving up your need for control?

Also, as a way to better share advice with you all, I make video responses to your mental health questions.

The last video I made was about what to do if your thoughts make you feel unhappy, lonely, or unsuccessful. If this sounds relevant to you, you can check out the video here:

Otherwise, if you have any questions about mental health, please post in my group and I will try to make a video response specifically for you.

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

I can't remember if I took my night meds

Last night was a blur for me. I can't remember if I took my olanzapine or imipramine. I feel ok today, no anxiety, so maybe I did take it.

I gotta get a better routine for taking care of myself. I have the chores app which is very helpful, and my meds are on the calendar on my phone so I get alerts when I gotta take them. I keep forgetting to take my miralax. But I stopped taking my Mounjaro cuz I thought maybe my insurance would finally approve the ozempic.

It didn't.

My doctor's office is terrible at writing PA for meds. I've taken Mounjaro, metformin, and a few more I can't remember the name of. It's what my insurance said I had to do before they would approve ozempic. So I don't know what else they need from me.

”Life is not over because you have diabetes. Make the most of what you have.“ - Dale Evans

You don't have to limit your life because of diabetes. Living an active and fulfilling life is still possible with proper management and treatment. Rather than letting diabetes hold you back, use it to motivate you to make healthy choices and enjoy life to the fulfuller

Peace

If you had to wait for everything to be in place before you were able to find peace, there would be no point in mental health exercises. You need to find peace in the moment despite the constant flow of obstacles and challenges in your life. How do you practice peace in the face of obstacles?

As a way to better share advice with you all, I make video responses to your mental health questions.

The last video I made was about what to do if you define yourself by your mental health challenges and how to move forward. If this sounds relevant to you, you can check out the video here:

Otherwise, if you have any questions about mental health, please post in my group and I will try to make a video response specifically for you.
