Chronicle. (See also: #dayofdiabetes)
(Chronicle was a movie from a few years ago that I actually liked very much, even though it god a little crazypants towards the end. Still, a quality film, IMO.)
But today’s post is not about that movie. It’s about chronicling a day with a chronic condition. For Diabetes Awareness Month, I’m taking diabetes awareness to task by documenting the daily duties of life with type 1, from site changes to emotional responses to blood sugar numbers … and all the non-diabetes-yet-still-diabetes crap in between. A big advocacy “thank you!” to Chris Snider’s #dayofdiabetes campaign, and I think November is a perfect time to pop the bubble of diabetes awareness. People living with diabetes know what diabetes is like. Let’s show people who might not understand what a day in the life truly means.
Join in on Twitter using the hashtag #dayofdiabetes and share what strikes you about life with diabetes. Then share that hashtag with your non-diabetes friends, family, coworkers, and Internet connections because Diabetes Awareness Month should be about educating outside of the DOC (Diabetes Online Community).
