We don’t need to tell you that the mental burden of diabetes is a heavy one. And most of us – caregivers and people with diabetes alike – are never given any resources to help. My guest this week is trying to help.
Dr. Mark Heyman is a diabetes psychologist and lives with type 1 himself. His new book is called “Diabetes Sucks, and You Can Handle It.” We talk about why he wanted to write the book, who it’s for and what we can learn from his experiences. talk about some of the common fears and worries he hears and what he advises his patients.
