Diabetes affects everyone differently, but it also affects the people close to it daily too.
For me, communication with my family and to my friends has meant a lot. To feel that I don’t have to feel guilty for feeling certain emotions, that I can call at any time of the day without getting complaints, to ask for a hug and get a huge amount of love in return. That to me is so important.
Eating disorders are one of the most common psychiatric disorders in people with type 1 diabetes, with a prevalence twice that of individuals without diabetes. But! There is hope! And you are the expert, and no one is perfect ❤️
