Its a blanket term, but what does it mean, "burnout"?
How do we define that term with regard to our diabetes so that we know it describes us or does not? Anybody care to take a shot at this one... define how it (Burnout) presents itself either to ourselves our families, or our larger community in general?
Close, but no cigar.
Still no cigar. That's frustration.
Interesting metaphor... something that would eventually kill you...?! Whats the difference between frustration and something MORE dangerous, more malevolent somehow? How do we tell when frustration evolves into that thing?
Frustration is a reaction to something. Frustration is active. Usually brief or fluctuating. Agitation. Burn-out is being worn down by something. Harder to turn around than frustration. You've not heard "Close, but no cigar"? A boardwalk/ carnival expression.
First let me apologize upfront for not responding far more timely. I shall try and do better this time around.
I've got fifteen years on you in terms of the diabetes. From my perspective, except for the hiding under the covers piece whichever way you meant it (literally/figuratively). Your perspective to me sounds like normal, pretty every day stuff -Unhappy shrug-
Mistaken theories, demands but no results... Not a fan of white coats. Yet to meet one worthy of our faith, our unfiltered trust.
