I discovered this very useful brochure (attached below) from the Behavioral Diabetes Institute (I also learned about them today).

That’s a great brochure. Ironic that you post this on the day when I have my first appointment with my Mental Health doc. Here’s hoping I don’t get a scrip for 10,000 mg of Fu*kitol a day.

LOL!!

It was great - It was concise and to the point - not overloaded with a lot of extra words.

Wow … that’s awesome! I wish I lived there to take the classes!!! I will tell you all though, Prozac has lowered my readings, my A1C and left me MUCH less depressed.

So glad to hear you’re doing better, Ruth. (I take anti-depressants too.)
Yes, the first thing I thought of was “too bad he’s not in Minneapolis”. We have a large diabetes center here and they have some behavioral health psychologists, but I’ve never seen them off a group thing.
