Welcome back to our Friday "life with diabetes" video short series from filmmaker Jenny MacKenzie, who created the documentary film Sugar Babies. This week's snippet looks at a teenager with diabetes who's trying to do better in his D-management, but is facing that common sense of burnout that we PWDs (people with diabetes) know all too well.
In this boy's words, diabetes burnout is when "you don't care about diabetes — period," and your D seems like "a little dirty little secret you keep in the closet or something... you just tuck it away."
