** A message from Self-Care Retreats**
This Retreat Program was designed by two Registered Nurses (type 1), a chef/author (type 1) and a psychotherapist (type 2) for women with diabetes to integrate extraordinary self-care techniques in their day to day lives. Women with diabetes are wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, and grandmothers who have honed the skill of caring for others. Be it in the workplace or at home, we cook nutritious meals, care physically, emotionally and financially for our loved ones and yet, often, find little time to care deeply for ourselves.
If you are a woman who has struggled to remember to test your blood sugar or take your insulin or medication, gain adequate rest or exercise, eat well, feel overwhelmed or misunderstood, this Self-Care Retreat was designed specifically for you. Research shows that stress elevates blood sugar and makes it harder to manage. These Retreats focus on learning useful ways to manage stress and manage your blood sugar as well as the other myriad elements of the challenge of diabetes self care.
All of the Presenters at this Retreat have diabetes! They are deeply aware of the specific challenges that women with diabetes face each and every day, and have some special tricks and techniques up their lacy sleeves.
