There are many articles, blogs and books about diabetes burnout. It is being discussed in the Joslin Medalists Facebook group. Like some of the other medalists, I do not feel that I have experienced burnout. I was diagnosed in 1945, when I was only 6, and diabetes became my way of life. I do not remember any other way of life, and I am comfortable with living with diabetes.
The article below says that diabetes burnout does exist, and it is different for everyone. Do you, or have you experienced diabetes burnout? If so, how do you describe your burnout? What are the symptoms you have experienced? How do you cope with it?
