I have noticed that many people on this site have animals, dogs and cats especially. I am thinking about getting a dog. Do you think that animals help you deal with having diabetes? If so in what way? I was thinking that having a dog would keep me more active and give me more opportunity to exercise. I think a dog would also help with times when I just feel overwhelmed or down because they are so loving. I know that dogs are a lot of work and responsibility but it seems like a good idea. I would have no choice about getting up and outside a few extra times a day.
Do your pets help you with your diabetes?
