According to the American Diabetes Association, “In 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes. Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes.” Despite its prevalence, those who have it may struggle to adapt and don’t always feel understood. It’s more than a physical/medical condition; it’s a way of life.
This deck was created to shed light on the impact that diabetes has on individuals and their families/loved ones. Use it to initiate those difficult conversations with your family and friends…even your doctor. Practice applying the Skills & Attitudes of resilience to the challenges presented as well as your own. Use it in a support group or as a teaching tool with newly-diagnosed patients.

BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
