Type 1 diabetes and mental health.
There seems to be a massive underestimation about how mich chronic illness affects mental wellbeing.
Yesterday, I went to a therapy session. I told a woman I had never met before ‘why I was there’…that I’ve had a broken pancreas for 13 years. That it makes me anxious, think the worst, feel that my body was broken.
I’m working on it, but it’s taken a long time, and several really low moments, to get here. Please look after yourself, mind and body, and know you’re not the numbers and graphs on your meter.
