#BurnoutTruth: Mariana's Story

by IBD Medical on September 07, 2022

Welcome to Mariana's #BurnoutTruth Story

Mariana's instagram: @marianafdef


My name is Mariana, I’m a T1D person based in Perth.

I was diagnosed abroad and since I moved back to Australia over two years ago, I needed to relearn how to treat diabetes using the resources, parameters, and benchmarks that medical professionals use here.

Though diabetes presents a myriad of challenges it has taught me to celebrate the simpler joys of life and to enjoy every win, no matter how small.

I love chatting, food, wine, dancing, discovering new places, hobbies, and talents.


Having diabetes has never stopped me from appreciating life and pursuing my passions.


If anything it has encouraged me to approach them with more excitement and gusto.



Behind the Burnout Truth Campaign

We believe it's important to continue our commitment with sharing the support as at the end of the day,  we understand and acknowledge that diabetes management is a 24/7 experience.

With that in mind, we've created a #BurnoutTruth initiative to use this chance to shine a public light on an area that's often experienced in the dark by yourself.

Burnout truth is all about showing the realness of having chronic illness burnout and normalising this experience so that others out there know that it is real. By sharing different community stories, we hope that we're able to communicate that the main message is to know that these things happen because you’re a human, whether it’s with diabetes or outside of having diabetes. 😊⁠
