Book excerpt: Dealing with Diabetes Burnout: How to Recharge and Get Back on Track When You Feel Frustrated and Overwhelmed Living with Diabetes will begin by digging deeply into why we felt burnt out, why this disease takes such an immense toll on us, and why it's about so much more than “eating a healthy diet” and “taking your medication.” The chapters will each directly address burnout in relation to: food, exercise, insulin dosing, blood sugar checking, fear of low blood sugar, being a caregiver/spouse of a person with diabetes, communicating more effectively with your doctor, how to take a healthy “vacation” from diabetes, and how to create realistic expectations and goals for yourself.
