World Diabetes Day 2012.
Diabetes is not something I celebrate. I'm not happy to have it, and if given the opportunity to shove it back from whence it came, I would totally do that.
But the people I've met through diabetes-related events? The people who share inspiring stories and belly laughs and cups of coffee and tears and who are instant kindred spirits in a world where so many people don't understand what diabetes even is?
I celebrate the people, not the disease. Because the people are truly amazing.
Happy World Diabetes Day!
