The psychological effects of diabetes have been studied for many years. Each person in the family is concerned to understand that the disease goes beyond a disorganized organism.
We have in front of us a person who faces a difficulty, who suffers for that cause and whose life changes in a transitory or definitive way.
It is recognized that the dangerous increase in blood sugar levels can occur over the course of a few days and the person feels threatened, with fear, calculating each step he takes. Try to accept that you must maintain strict control of blood glucose. Many times it avoids going out to events that involve certain meals, it reduces prolonged trips due to the lack of nearby bathrooms. He does not find support groups to talk freely about his condition, besides the doctor or health personnel.
Situations that generate constant threats and fears are not the only source of conflict for the person who experiences this disease with its own characteristics. It is the accumulation of day-to-day conflicts that generate demands and demands on their emotional and economic capacity to confront reality.
The patient recognizes that he definitely needs external sources of help. It is here where the family structure cushions your emotions, and contributes to making the treatment bearable giving you the necessary support at all times.
