  • Ask someone around you to carry your diabetes supplies for you for a day.
  • Ask someone you're with to do your injections for you (if they know how) if you're experiencing needle fatigue.
  • Take a day off work when you're feeling burnt out and do something just for you (sleeping, going for a swim, reading, seeing friends, etc).
  • Vent to a close friend or partner (sometimes, I just vent out everything I'm feeling about being diabetic without wanting a response or solution).
  • Make an appointment with your diabetes team/educator/psychologist to reassess your management.
