- Diabetes Advocates issued a press release, raising awareness of "diapression"
- The American Diabetes Association also issued a release specifically addressing depression in patients with T1D (though I didn't like the tone at the beginning; tastes a little blame-y)
- You Can Do This Project has been sharing guest posts written by people in our community who balance the management of diabetes with mental health (if you'd like to write one, we'd love to feature it), and released that group video earlier in the month
- Diabetes Blog Week instigated a flurry of blog posts from around our community about how diabetes impacts us emotionally
It's one of those really uncomfortable topics for a lot of us to talk about, but I'm so glad when we do. I've always admired the way people draw strength from the very things that supposedly make us weak. I know I'm cherry-picking the following quotes; forgive me:
The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places."
