So, I had an idea …  inspired by the weekly photo challenges that are all the rage on social media these days.  Only this challenge would run for a whole month and have an actual purpose.   Allow me to introduce the…

#MakeDiabetesVisible Photo Challenge

November is Diabetes Awareness Month and it begins tomorrow. During the next 30 days, I will be posting at least 1 photo a day that captures part of my life with diabetes. The goal is to make diabetes visible and show what it is like to live with ALL types of diabetes. The highs, the lows, the finger sticks, the meters, the pumps, the CGMs, the insulins, the pills, etc…

I invite all of my friends living with any type of diabetes to join me in this challenge.  30 days, 30 photos, ALL types of diabetes.  Any social media platform.  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, whatever.

Please share, use the hashtag, and let’s #MakeDiabetesVisible

Thank you!



It’s the last day of Diabetes Awareness Month. I want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the #MakeDiabetesVisible Photo Challenge and awareness campaign. It has really warmed my heart watching this idea grow over the last 30 days. Thank you all for sharing your diabetes life with the world. The good, the bad, and the completely ridiculous. Lots of love!

Stay tuned for a recap of the campaign and related shenanigans in the coming days.


The Diabetes Online Community is vast, bringing together people from all walks of life from all around the world. I’m quite thankful to have been able to meet so many, both online and in person, over the last 9 years. My life has been enriched by your presence in it.  Thank you and lots of love!
