It’s that time of year again…November. November is diabetes awareness month.
Today’s Blog Post: What Does Diabetes Awareness Month Mean to Me?
This month is special to me because I feel united with others. Because diabetes is such an individual experience I spend most of my time feeling alone. I’m often the loan diabetic in the room or the lone “diabetic that prioritizes management” and because of that I enjoy embracing all that November has to offer. The diabetes walks, the stories shared by others, the educational seminars, the concern…in short, the attention. Finally, the seriousness of diabetes gets its fair shot at getting everyone’s attention.
I enjoy talking about diabetes with others and during the month of November I get to do that more often.
