It’s the first day of Diabetes Blog Week! Woohoo! If you didn’t sign up, it’s never too late!
Let’s kick off the week by talking about why we are, in the diabetes blog space. What is the most important diabetes awareness message to you? Why is that message important for you, and what are you trying to accomplish by sharing it on your blog?
I think sharing your story is the most important thing you can do as a patient. Why? Because each of us has a unique perspective on diabetes. There are still countless people- physicians, nurses, family members, friends still don’t understand diabetes or even know enough to help us. And even worse, there are countless incorrect myths floating out there.
My mission is simply, to put a face to diabetes. If one person wears their pump proudly, instead of hiding it, then I have accomplished my goal.
