Navigating the Mental Gymnastics of Diabetes

Two years ago, at the age of 33, Jake was diagnosed with diabetes. Having lived a majority of his life without diabetes, Jake has been struggling with grieving his old life and is in the process of learning how to balance diabetes without it becoming all-consuming.

In this episode of the Diabetes Psychologist Podcast, I coach Jake and discuss tips to help him navigate the mental gymnastics of diabetes. Even though his life has changed, he can still find ways to do the things he enjoys with flexibility and freedom as a T1D.
