"Get your mental health plan structured as early as possible. Chronic stressors cause Impairment to memory, attention, cognitive function and more. Just in case you were wondering why you seem so frazzled. T1d is about resilience and I believe positivity is a muscle. A muscle that needs to be worked out everyday. Meditation, therapy, community, if you need a place to start.

I’m excited to watch our community grow. It’s amazing seeing so many people living with t1d live meaningful, happy lives. This isn’t your grandmas diabetes!
