Your no BS source for thriving with Diabetes

4 diabetes beliefs that work against you

Negative thoughts and beliefs can impact your diabetes treatment 🤯

How you administer it. How you make choices. Even how you view diabetes. Often times these 4 common beliefs come from outside sources. When these thoughts run rampant they can cause extreme damage. 

In this weeks Hindsight thoughts podcast episode, I talk about how you can adjust negative beliefs to positive ones that don’t cause extreme changes or sacrifice. I personally have experienced these particular 4. I’ve seen how they’ve hurt me and others in the community. 

My hope is that you’ll be able to combat these beliefs that have nothing to do with yourself, diagnosis, or treatment.


  • FALSE: Being a diabetic means that you can’t enjoy things. 
  • FALSE: Losing weight is the answer to everything. 
  • FALSE: Being on medication is a bad thing. 
  • FALSE: You caused your diabetes.

My core belief is that you can carve your own path. Unafraid to stand in the gap, I started Healing In Hindsight™ after noticing that there weren’t many millennials of color that I could connect with. Being of black and thai descent, I was diagnosed at 25 with type 2 diabetes. I found the transition into managing my condition difficult. My hope is to have thoughtful conversations about how anyone living with diabetes can thrive by finding a way to manage that fits them.
