This has been such a debilitating fear that I took it for granted that my older years would be marred by the deadly disease.
As a child, I helplessly watched my grandmother go through mood swings, never-ending hunger pangs, perennial bruises that refused to heal, and depression, as her blood sugar levels rose and fell.
When my Mom was diagnosed with Diabetes a few months ago, my fear sky rocketed. From looking like a remote possibility, Diabetes became a sword hanging over my head. Without my realizing it, this fear crept into my eating habits.
It became so that every time I reached for a sugary item, I was filled with dread. The dread that consuming sugar was pushing me closer to the disease.
I believe there are many factors that can lead to the onset of Diabetes in people. But sugar had become my Achilles heel. It just seemed to me like sugar was the enemy. It even started to feel like I was getting irritable each time I consumed anything sugary.
Below is the exact tapping sequence I used to release this fear and establish a healthy relationship with sugar.
EFT tapping set up
Even though I’m afraid I will be developing Diabetes because it runs in the family, I accept and forgive myself.Even though my relationship with sugar has been marred by the fear of “catching” Diabetes, I still want to be able to enjoy life’s sweet pleasures safely and without fear.
Even though I’m really really afraid that Diabetes will reduce me to a vegetable at the mercy of others, I want to find my strength now, and keep it.
Even though it is so unfair that I have to be predisposed to Diabetes, part of me is ready to reclaim all the power I have already given away to Diabetes.

I feel neutral about Diabetes.
These few rounds of tapping helped me more than reading any number of self-help books might have. This tapping shrunk the image of Diabetes in my mind from a lifelong prison sentence to something much more manageable.
My relationship with sugar is the best it has ever been. I enjoy my cakes and cupcakes, but with no more caution than the healthy person next door.
This tapping script specifically targets Diabetes, but you can use it as a reference for tapping on any other disease as well. Here is a more general EFT tapping script to release fear and frustration around any genetically transmitted disease.
