Getting Mad At Diabetes
Presenters: Natalie Bellini, Stefan RubinSome days, having diabetes just stinks. And having to watch your brother or sister have to go through pokes and shots just stinks. It's enough to make a kid really, really mad. You know what, though? It's ok to be mad. Join Natalie and Stefan to talk about it. They're adults now, but they were kids with diabetes at one time. And they got mad (they still do). There are ways to be positive with your anger. Learn how. Session sponsored by Animas Corporation.
