In this week’s episode, I’m joined by Jehan Arafa Tappe to discuss navigating shame and vulnerability with type one diabetes.
Jehan was diagnosed with T1D at ten years old and is now a coach on the Risely team. For a long time, Jehan would put on a happy face for family and friends when in reality, she was suffering on the inside and was struggling with her relationship with diabetes.
In this episode, she shares the story of a secret that she's held onto for 23 years that she only recently told her husband about.
Other takeaways that you're going to hear in the episode:
1. The underlying issues we hear from clients that need to be addressed in order to
move forward in their T1D journey.
2. How diabetes coaching works and helps you get to the root of those issues.
3. Straightforward tips to implement into your routine to get low-hanging fruit wins.
