Diabetes Blog Week Type 1 Diabetes

Message Monday

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.

    I love your message Molly! Often times its overlooked by organisations and the media that there are actual faces behind this disease. Look forward to reading more this week.

    I’m a firm believer of if even one person is better off, then it was worth all the effort. Great post!

    Sorry that there are so many faces of diabetes because I wish that no one had diabetes. But since we do, thanks for sharing your story:-)

    I love your blog. I wear mine in my pocket. It gives me a thrill when it alarms. 🙂

    I referred your blog to the TUDiabetes blog page for the week of May 16, 2016.

    Proud pumpers unite!!! I show my pump whenever I can – and have met countless other diabetics because of it!

    Thanks for sharing your story. As you said, the more stories that are out there, the better chance we have at helping other people understand diabetes.
