Psycho-Social Aspects of Diabetes

The diagnosis of diabetes can cause any number of feelings in each family member as well as in the family as a group. These feelings often follow a similar pattern, sometimes referred to as the grief process. The student may deny the disease or feel very sad. Anger is very common as is fear and guilt. Adaptation to the condition is aided by talking and sharing feelings. School nurses and teachers are in a position to listen and provide support.
