Coping with Diabetes 1

Having the right attitude in life is very important for everybody. And apart from the medication, what diabetics need most is encouragement and optimism.
When I was diagnosed 22 years ago, I adopted a positive attitude from the very beginning. One of the things that helped me develop a positive attitude was learning that there were many successful individuals who had diabetes.
Thomas Edison, Mary Tyler Moore, Nikita Kruschchev and painter Paul Cezanne were all high achieving individuals who had diabetes. Today and throughout history, many diabetics have reached fame, even in demanding careers.
