Today to a special day for so many of my friends in the Diabetes Online Community, as 11-1-11, the first day of Diabetes Awareness Month, has been designated as T1 Day. It is a day devoted to raising awareness for those living with Type 1 Diabetes. It’s about raising awareness to the difficulties type 1’s deal with each and every day, dispelling the myths and misinformation spread through the media and other sources. It a day for supporting those living with Type 1 Diabetes.
And that’s what I do. I love and support all of my friends who live this disease. And I support their day, T1 Day.
And, if you really want to know what life with Type 1 Diabetes is like, take some time and check out the numerous Type 1 blogs listed on my blogroll. They are written by real people, living the realities of the disease, and they all tell it like it is. No sugar coating.
Happy T1 Day, My Friends! Lots of Love!
