The secret to a happy life with diabetes?

From Facebook (Diabetic South Africans):

What’s the secret to a happy life with diabetes?

To not make it an issue. Treat it and forget it. Life is too short.

Most people suffer some type of illness, but we all have to just deal with it and get on with our lives.

Sorry to all those optimistic people out there… but there is no happy life with diabetes 🙁

Finding the right balance… While diabetes is not a good thing to have, one certainly does still have a happy life. Be informed… and that goes for your spouse and family members too.

Support and understanding from the people closest to you makes it easier to live with.

    It is a life with diabetes. Life is much more than diabetes. Don’t make it diabetes with a life!

    We are defined by our strength but not we have. Furmore diabetes iss just a condition which makes more displied and responsible. For the last 40 years with diabetes no regrets.
