Abstract:

As a diabetes social science researcher and person with type 1 diabetes for more than 24 years, I cringe when my health care providers HCPs suggest that I need to control my diabetes. I know exactly what they are saying however, I have come to accept that control is beyond my capability. Merriam Webster defines control as, to direct the behavior of something to do what you want to have power over 1. If only I had this super power On the other hand, the definition of management is, to handle or direct with a degree of skill and to take care of and make decisions about 2. This is something I can do
