This is another live podcast recording thanks to Connected in Motion. I spoke to Alexis, Duke and Reba who all live with type 1 diabetes and one diagnosed at least with mental illness. We talk about the difficulties faced overcoming stigma, navigating those 'good' and 'bad' diabetes days when mental illness is at play and much more.
