Remember when you first learned that you had diabetes? In an instant the news seemed to recalibrate your life. If you were a child when diagnosed with type 1, you may not have understood the enormity of your condition right away but may have felt scared because your family’s reaction indicated that it was serious. If you were diagnosed as an adult with diabetes of any type, the emotional fallout may have felt a lot like a grieving process –prompting feelings of shock, disbelief, anger ‘why me’ and at times, a big dose of denial.

Diabetes is not a death sentence, but it can feel like a life one. It can really shake up your world. After diagnosis, day-to-day activities that were once simple and straightforward such as eating, exercising, even enjoying a late night out with a few glasses of red, suddenly require greater attention, forward  planning and consideration. After a while it can feel like there is never time out from diabetes management, which like an octopus, sends its tentacles into every area of your life.

Sometimes you will feel totally in control of this juggle and marvel at how well you manage. At other times, monitoring your blood glucose levels (BGLs), medication and insulin, on top of the hurdles of everyday life, will become a time-sucking intrusion in your day. In particular, when you are overloaded with lots of other responsibilities and tasks, or when diabetes is not playing fair, your daily ‘must do’ diabetes  management list can become an exhausting marathon. In your lowest moments, this can weigh heavily and feel an enormous burden, even a curse. Enter diabetes burnout: an emotional holding pattern where you’re so overwhelmed by the constant demands of managing your condition that you drop the ball marked ‘self care’ and start to resign yourself to, ignore or neglect your diabetes. It is a state far beyond sheer exhaustion that leads you to feel you just want to lie down right where you stand and give in, give up or give it all a big miss.

Experiencing burnout is not about being weak or being a ‘bad’ person. It is nothing to be ashamed of. Diabetes burnout can happen to any person with diabetes at any time. This book is designed to help. It aims to give you an emotional life raft so you can return to solid ground. It will help you spot early signs of burnout, understand your own triggers and know the best steps to take to stop any downward spiral.

The book is filled with tips and insights to help you maintain a comfortable relationship with your own diabetes. Each chapter offers helpful ideas and strategies designed to help you better cope, act and react, whether your stress levels have been skyrocketing, you are on the brink of burnout or you are living in the burnout zone. Read on and find your way back to vitality and healthy diabetes self-management and care.
