Abstract/Description: Immediately upon our diagnosis, we are inundated with information about diabetes. In our visits with our healthcare team, we receive education from our healthcare providers, but we’re also surrounded by posters, handouts, pamphlets, magazines, and all sorts of literature issuing the do’s and don’ts of our new life with diabetes. On top of all that, we have to keep up with our personal health history, health needs, and all the data points that are incorporated into a life with a chronic condition.Diabetes is a chronic illness, and we can’t live our lives waiting for the next awful thing to happen. There has to be life after diagnosis, and we need to find a way to take on information without creating a pile of anxiety.
