Social Life and Diabetes

Posted on March 22, 2018

"My day is good--have been extra busy with activities I was unable to do before---so am enjoying a more social life---my hip, after fall, seems to be healing itself. Am enjoying the warmer weather, watching a lot of rare birds, likely just passing thru, on migration route--life is good! Hope all is well with everyone!!" -A member on DiabetesTeam

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. The impact of diabetes on our members' social lives is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about social life:

What are some healthy lunch ideas if you are going out to fast food spots?

I feel worthless to my wife. How do I deal with these feelings?

Here are a few conversations about social life:

My social life is increasing! I sing in a choir that meets every Sat morning.

I try to active by being social with friends and family.

I think that keeping an active social life helps to keep on track. When you're not depressed it's easier to stay the course don't you think?

Can you relate?
