And stress can make control of the illness as well as the ongoing care that any chronic condition needs more difficult. Ask your doctor about support groups for Diabetes or for a referral for counseling or to a psychiatrist who can "assess the stress" and together with you devise a treatment plan. Good Luck! Good Health!
