In this episode, I do a deep dive into pillar #3: Behavior.
Type 1 diabetes is an anxiety-provoking condition. And a lot of times, this fear gets in the way of taking action. You put off doing things you want to do with T1D because you are scared, and you tell yourself you will do them when your fear goes away.
With this approach, you will probably be waiting a very long time.
The key to emotional health with T1D is not your emotions. It is your behavior. If your feelings did not get in the way of your behavior, they would not be that big of a deal.
