The mission of Kobi's Konnection is to connect families living with type 1 diabetes. We welcome you to an organization no one asked to be a part of. We inspire, educate, advocate, and support you on your journey
Our vision is to one day live in a world with NO Type 1 Diabetes, but until then we aim to normalize talking, coping, and supporting mental wellness in hopes of avoiding burnout.
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 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
Is a non-negotiable. It is behaviors you adopt to maintain physical and emotional stability
