College Students with Diabetes (and people who work in stressful careers)


College Students with Diabetes (and people who work in stressful careers)

This group is for anyone who is in college and a diabetic. Some of the topics discussed is how to handle exam stress and blood sugars, college humor, and all things related!

Members: 534

Whether you are just starting college, almost done with undergrad, or seeking your PhD, this is the place for you. College is a unique atmosphere and adding diabetes to it can make it even more unique! I created this group because the college years can be stressful and generally, there isnt another diabetic within 100 yards from you, and sometimes you just need someone to talk to or seek advice from. All are more than welcome here, even if you are not in college!

I am opening this up to people who work in stressful careers, including parents, since the effects of the stress from college and careers can affect us the same.

It's a pet peeve to have my mother yell at me when I decide to dip my finger on the cake frosting... But it just shows she cares. Anyone relates?
