I feel like I’m slowly becoming more and more lazy about diabetes lately. I’m swagging my carbs and insulin more than usual. I’m testing a lot less. I’m bolusing and treating off my CGM numbers more and more, even though I know that’s a very bad idea. Exercise? What is exercise? Overall, I just feel like my diabetes management has been getting sloppy.
If you asked me if it’s Diabetes Burnout, I’d probably say it’s not and that it’s just me being a slacker. But when I stop to think about it . . . . isn’t that pretty much what Diabetes Burnout is? Being sloppy because I just don’t feel that motivated? Knowing I should try harder, but just not today? Feeling that while I could be doing better, I’m not doing all that bad so it’s no big deal?
Ummm, hello, time for a wake-up call!! I have to say, this sounds like Diabetes Burnout (or at least the beginnings of it) to me. Does it sound like Diabetes Burnout to you?
