D-Blog Day!

D-Blog day is important! It is time to educate, listen up. D-Blog day is a chance for me to say the six things I want you to know most about diabetes.

No matter how much I exercise, I still have to take insulin... This may be my biggest diabetes pet-peeve. People with type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease, must always take insulin. We need this to stay alive. It is not a cure. NOT A CURE!! No matter how many HOURS a day I exercise, I still have to have insulin...

There are different types of diabetes...I have type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease. My sixth chromosome is altered, this gives me the genetic predisposition to develop type 1 diabetes. I did. There is nothing I did to cause type 1 diabetes, there was nothing I could do to prevent it. Here I am.

The Diabetes Online Community is strong...We have loud voices. We will write stand up for what we believe in and we rally around each other when there is sadness.

We are trying to find a CURE...and we are serious about it!

No matter how hard I try, things still go wrong...I spend a lot of time on my diabetes care. No matter how hard I try, I still have random highs and lows. Technology is making things better, but things still happen.

Don't feel sorry for us...We want you to be educated, but don't feel bad for us, we are strong and determined.

Hope is in the CURE!
