Anxiety

Experiencing a chronic illness puts a person at increased risk for developing anxiety.  Anxiety is excessive worry or panic attacks

Depression-People with chronic medical conditions are at higher risk of depression

It may be hard to adapt to a new reality and to cope with the changes and ongoing treatment that comes with diagnosis. Temporary feelings of sadness are expected.  Seek help if longer

burnout

Burnout because of chronic disease can look different for everyone, but for people with diabetes it can mean you stop taking care of yourself and your diabetes.  Not taking insulin. Some describe it as hitting a wall or giving up 

self-care

Is a non-negotiable.  It is behaviors you adopt to maintain physical and emotional stability
