From a psychology student in Sao Paulo, Brazil:

I have to write about diabetes and personality, but I just can't find books or articles. I need to know if there are materials for this research.


Diabetes does not affect someone's personality. Your personality may impact how you cope with your diabetes.

Begin your search by looking through PsychLit and PubMed. Put in key words such as adaptation, coping and adjustment + diabetes. You may also wish to put in the key words of depression and anxiety.
