Living with diabetes can be very frustrating at times. Low and high blood sugars can get in the way of everything from taking a test at school to having sex. Understanding what the underlying causes of these frustrations are, can help reduce or possibly even prevent Diabetes Burnout. While the actual events you're frustrated about are part of the equation, how we think about our diabetes plays a much larger role. During this seminar, we are going to go over the causes and symptoms of Diabetes Burnout. We are going to look at contributing factors of diabetes burnout: Perception of diabetes, Value placed on Diabetes Self-Management, Perspective on Blood Glucose. Self-Care behaviors that can be used to reduce burnout will be discussed as well. There will be a short question and answer period as well. I look forward to helping you reduce diabetes burnout. See you there!
Stoping diabetes-related frustration can be very challenging and annoying. It can become so overwhelming that it causes emotional distress; triggering unnecessary arguments, snappiness towards others, problems at work or home. During this class, we are going to look at the ways frustration impacts our lives as well as methods to reduce that impact. Diabetes-related frustration goes way beyond testing for blood sugar. It's surprising how many hidden triggers there are, and we are going to learn how to identify these triggers that cause your frustration and resolve them. Understanding the underlying causes of your frustration and initiating methods to deal with stressful triggers, can help reduce stress caused by diabetes, along with other Self-Care Behaviors. There will be a short question and answer period. I look forward to helping you reduce your frustrations. See you there!

For many people with diabetes, blood sugar takes a silent toll on cognition, memory, retention, and recall. It can diminish learning, raise stress levels, and spur additional maladies such as depression. It impacts all aspects of life, lifestyle and turns your life upside down. For the people close to them, it has an impact as well: they often must learn to cope with feelings of guilt, anger, being helpless, and worried about this complex health issues. My private practice helps clients of all ages and their families manage life with diabetes.
