Diabetes Sisters: Pearls of Wisdom.
At the Diabetes Sisters conference last weekend, the theme seemed to be "pearls of wisdom," and sharing those moments with others in the "sisterhood of diabetes." I loved this workshop moment, because regardless of how long you've been living with or caring for someone living with diabetes, you've learned something. That's something that I'm reminded of everyday: it's impossible to know it all. The learning curve for life with diabetes is steep and constant, but sharing our stories and leaning on one another helps make the tougher moments easier to manage.
Here are a few of my favorite "pearls" from the conference:
Looking at this whole table of wisdom inspired the hell out of me, and confirmed, yet again, that I'm not alone with any of this. Do you have a pearl of wisdom about life with diabetes? Share it!
