Welcome to DIY (Do It Yourself) Diabetes with Marci Page Sloane

Coach's Corner

Life, like diabetes, goes up and down and round and round and we try our best to carry ourselves through. Along the way, we reach out for help. Help from people like our family, our friends, acquaintances and sometimes strangers. We also seek help, or comfort, from habits. Good habits can be created as easily as bad habits. Understanding what we should do and actually doing it can be two different things. Therefore, you are encouraged to use the support at this site to assist you in managing your diabetes. Read over and possibly even recite the A-Z inspirational messages, learn to meditate or read and share your stories on the forum and blog. If you need a good laugh (with education involved as well) indulge in my "Have You Ever?" stories.

Smiling and laughing seems to create a positive spin to your day.

Have a fun one!
