I saw this on facebook and thought it was a cool idea,

My 3-Step Burnout Cure: 1-admit how much the D sucks, allow myself to feel sad/angry/scared. Repeat as necessary. 2:take a deep breath, remember "doing my best is all I can do." I let myself take a break from the constant stress and worrying3: I remind myself of all the GOOD things that have come from my diabetes and think about how it has changed my life for the better. It has been a struggle, but it has also given me much more. It has made me who I am today, and I would never change that. Without diabetes I would have never met my best friend, and other friends, and i would have never been able to find diabetes camp...

how do YOU deal with burnout? Post your solution as your and help inspire each other :)

Great suggestions. Everyone can just be overwhelmed by all the cr*p with diabetes. There is a book called Diabetes Burnout that is really good. Sometimes, I just think it would be nice to just single day without diabetes.
