Dealing with Diabetes Burnout: How to Recharge and Get Back on Track When You Feel Frustrated and Overwhelmed Living with Diabetes is an inspiring and empowering guide to managing the daily work and pressure of diabetes management - guilt and shame for imperfect habits, stressful daily decisions around food, the constant pricking of your fingers, technology frustrations, teaching friends and family how to be supportive, and more - that can lead to burnout. Vieira provides the tools and encouragement needed to help readers get back on track and make diabetes management a rewarding priority. Chapters directly address burnout in relation to: food, exercise, insulin dosing, blood sugar checking, fear of low blood sugar, being a caregiver/spouse of a person with diabetes, communicating more effectively with your doctor, taking a healthy "vacation" from diabetes, and creating realistic expectations and goals.

Author of Your Diabetes Science Experiment and Emotional Eating with Diabetes, Ginger Vieira has lived with Type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease since 1999. Today, she is an avid freelance writer and motivational speaker with a background as a certified cognitive coach, personal trainer, and Ashtanga yoga instructor specializing in coaching people with diabetes. She creates diabetes video blogs at her YouTube Channel and produces regular freelance content for various diabetes websites including DiabetesDaily.com and ASweetLife.org. In 2009 and 2010, Ginger set 15 records in drug-tested powerlifting with her best lifts including a 308 lb deadlift, 190 lb. bench press, and a 265 lb. squat. Today, she lives in Vermont with three dogs and her fella.
