A quick note from Gary… Good News
The publisher of Think Like A Pancreas has asked me to start working on a 3rd edition. I guess that’s good news… at least it shows that somebody is actually reading it. One of my favorite aspects of the book is a graphic that my daughter Marley drew for me showing the three interlocking factors that are necessary for quality diabetes management: The right tools, The right skills, and The right attitude/mindset.
That last item is really, really important. So many people go to diabetes classes and get the latest high-tech gadgets but fail to reach their goals. That’s why I’m thrilled to announce that Diane Herbert, MSS/LSW/CDE has rejoined our team to provide emotional health services for our clients.
Diane is a licensed medical social worker, certified family mediator and diabetes educator with a focus on helping individuals and families work through the clinical and emotional challenges of living with type-1 diabetes. Diane provides telehealth counseling for people of all ages, including family therapy. Her areas of expertise include diabetes distress/depression/anxiety, coping issues, and caring for children/partners/loved ones with diabetes. PLEASE contact us for information on Diane’s services and availability. Remember, when it comes to diabetes management, we’re only as strong as our weakest link.
Hope you enjoy this issue of Diabetes Bites! Your feedback is always welcome.
