Hello everyone! I’m Elizabeth, I’m 17, and I have had T1D for 5 years. I know that many in-person events have been canceled, and it has been difficult for newly diagnosed T1Ds to find the support they need. I created a video series to help newly diagnosed T1Ds cope with the emotional side of diabetes. This three-part video series features kids and teens with T1D sharing their stories and advice, parents of children with T1D sharing their stories and advice, and professionals (including an endocrinologist, school nurse, and psychologist) sharing their perspective on the emotional aspect of T1D. Please feel free to watch and share these videos with anyone you think would find them helpful! I am only able to include two links, so below are links to the kids’ and parents’ videos. You can find the link to the professionals’ video in my next post or by searching the title on Youtube (Coping with the Emotional Burdens of Diabetes).
Here are the links:
