It feels strange to say, but I’m happy it’s November. I love the fall, my wedding anniversary is this month AND it’s National Diabetes Awareness Month (which in turn holds World Diabetes Day.)
I wish that when I was first diagnosed that I knew just how many of us there were out there. More than just a small handful in my city, we are millions of people who are joined together by one common thread. We are constantly learning, adapting and changing. We are dynamic. We are strong. We share in each other’s wins, no matter how big or small, and understand each other’s struggles.
So whether you have diabetes yourself, or just know someone with diabetes – this is a month to spread awareness and for all of us to recognize the amazing achievements we have made so far and all of those to come in the future.
