DON'T LET T1D HOLD YOU BACK!
The Ultimate Guide To Getting Unstuck With Type 1 Diabetes gives you strategies you can start using TODAY to insert flexibility into your life with T1D.
Diabetes burnout is a state in which someone with T1D grows tired of managing their condition, and then simply ignores it for some time, or worse, forever. Although we don’t like to admit it, diabetes burnout is a normal part of living with T1D. Managing T1D is a 24/7 job, with no breaks, so experiencing burnout is to be expected sometimes.
David gives us some great strategies you can use to take care of yourself when burnout hits. You may not be able to avoid diabetes burnout, but you can find ways to minimize the impact of burnout on your life.
