Diabetes can take a toll on mental health. Emotionally, dealing with diabetes presents a whole set of issues that other people simply don't have. This can make it difficult to fit in and be understood. To remedy this, try joining a support group for people with diabetes. Most patients find this extremely rewarding as it's an opportunity to share and receive advice and other useful information with others. You can most likely find a support group through your hospital, but you can also check online for other alternatives. If needed, you may consult a psychologist.
