Emotional / Mental Wellness

Stress and coping may be the biggest hurdle you face in managing your diabetes, your weight and your health.  To be honest, I am not an expert in stress management, and I admit, that I too often need help in this area.  Therefore I felt it was beneficial to refer you to some resources by qualified mental health experts that have helped me tremendously.  I highly encourage you to look further into these resources.

This page will be a work in progress.  As I come across more trusted resources, I will be adding them to this page.  Please come back and visit periodically.
