More on My Diabetes Secret

Ginger profiled My Diabetes Secret over on Diabetes Daily. Here’s a snippet.

Ginger: Are you noticing any common feelings or do the submissions tend to vary significantly?

Me: There’s a lot of shame associated with diabetes, be it type 1 or type 2. There have been some submissions (that are still in the queue) that talk about hiding their diabetes from friends, family, and other people with diabetes because of how they have been treated or how they fear they will be treated. It’s tough because these stories aren’t the ones that are often shared in blogs and other online spaces. We all know there’s a huge mental burden that comes with diabetes, but I think we’re afraid to face that burden individually or as a group and try to get past it.
