Check out this cross-posted episode from Type 1 in Midlife, with Melissa Slemp from Abundant Health with Melissa.

We talk about self-sabotage, self-compassion, grace, and how to handle yourself in burnout—and why burnout even happens sometimes.

While intended for Melissa’s audience of midlife T1Ds, this conversation is chock-full of nuggets beneficial to everyone with T1D.

Meet Melissa Slemp

A discussion about self-sabotage with Melissa Slemp on Type 1 in Midlife.

Melissa is a wife and mom and managing type 1 diabetes was a struggle right after she was diagnosed at 14. By staying consistent for forty years she survived diabetic retinopathy, menopause, empty nest, and life’s curve balls, all while running two thriving businesses. 

After 20+ years of 9-5 corporate stress she left to pursue her dreams and study a holistic approach to better manage her diabetes and coach others.

Now a certified health coach and personal trainer, she has learned so much about what her body needs, and shares this with other busy women struggling with the daily grind of diabetes.

Melissa spends her downtime with husband David (also type 1 diabetic) and their dog Kona keeps them active, with paddle boarding, biking, and they love date nights at local wineries.
