Burnout Truth Diabetes Story

Welcome to Chloe's #BurnoutTruth Story

The dots on my fingers.

Scars from pricking my fingers everyday.

The bruises from needles and pump sites.

The pain.

The lows.

Shaking uncontrollably.

Unable to speak.

Brain shutting down.

The fear.

The alarms.

Drinking juice and eating sweets even though you feel sick from drinking and eating so much before.

No choice.

The highs.

The thirst.

The fear.

The relentlessness of it.

For the rest of my life.

No breaks.

No other choice but to carry on.

To survive.

 

This is my #BurnoutTruth!

Behind the Burnout Truth Campaign

With National Diabetes Awareness Month happening, we believe it's important to continue our committment with sharing the support as at the end of the day,  we understand and acknowledge that diabetes management is a 24/7 experience.


With that in mind, we've created a #BurnoutTruth initiative to use this chance to shine a public light on an area that's often experienced in the dark by yourself.

Burnout truth is all about showing the realness of having chronic illness burnout and normalising this experience so that others out there know that it is real. By sharing different communtiy stories, we hope that we're able to communicate that the main message is to know that these things happen because you’re a human, whether it’s with diabetes or outside of having diabetes. 😊⁠

Remember to always seek advice from your medical practitioner before changing anything about your diabetes management. The above information is not medical advice.
