Re: [IP] Attitudes about diabetes



What I mean by we can't change it is that no matter how happy or upset we are
about having diabetes, we are going to have it so instead of being depressed,
I'd much rather spend my life being happy, despite having diabetes. And I am
in no way suggesting that anyone does a bad job taking care of their children
and I am sorry if it came across like that.
Jacqui,

How does the ability to understand the gravity of a situation lead you to
infer that we have "negative attitudes" and "feel sorry for ourselves?"  Or
that we let it effect us negatively in the care of our children?  Or that we
in anyway don't "deal" with it?

And who says we can't change it?  In my view that is a very negative,
defeatist attitude.
