#BurnoutTruth: Natalie's Story

Diabetes Awareness Week Campaign

Welcome to Meg's #BurnoutTruth Story

I want to share my #BurnoutTruth and to let everyone know that it’s ok if this happens.

Having A chronic illness on top of everyday life stressors can be so difficult and overwhelming. So I want to remind you that you are not alone and that it’s OK to have these periods in life where you feel burnt out with your diabetes.

Something that I found helpful for me when I feel burnt out is to go back to basics and to do what I know is important but nothing extra.

Sometimes all you need to do is just be able to keep your head above water.

Also during these times it’s so important to give yourself grace and give yourself compassion. You are human and these things happen and you are not alone.

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. 😊⁠
