The daily-ness of a chronic disease such as diabetes can leave you feeling overwhelmed, powerless, and exhausted. You have to deal with the emotions that come with knowing that your body seems to have betrayed you. You have to cope with the fact that your life has changed permanently. And on some days, you may find that those feelings are more challenging than the physical symptoms. Those are the days when you have to search for inspiration, for discipline, for hope. That is what this book is designed to help you do. Your physical diagnosis may require certain care, but you have to be in the right frame of mind with the right intention of spirit to care for yourself properly, consistently, and wisely.
If you or someone you care for is overwhelmed with a new diabetes diagnosis or burned out from years of the daily-ness of the disease, the Living Well with Diabetes 14 Day Devotional is for you.
In the introduction the author gives suggestions for living well with diabetes—body, mind and spirit. Each section includes:
- An inspirational, encouraging message and bible verse that brings home the connection between what’s going on in your body and what’s happening in your soul.
- Positive affirmations that you can use as armor as you cope with the challenges of living with diabetes.
- Space to share your feelings and reflections on the inspirational messages, scripture, affirmations, or whatever you are feeling at the moment.
- Prompts for daily gratitude entries.
In the appendix, you’ll find a diabetes care schedule to help you stay on track with daily care, self-checks, exams, and appointments throughout the year.
