I never wanted to be a part of this club.
And honestly? I still don’t.
But… I am. That’s the hand I was dealt.
I am a Diabetic.
No, not just because I ate candy. Not just because I enjoyed bagels and pasta. The only people who think that are the ignorant ones not battling Diabetes.
Today, on World Diabetes Day, I invite you to open your mind and perspective, stop judging/blaming Diabetics, and educate yourself – the disease is truly WAY MORE complex than your suggestions to “just eat less sugar”.
I assure you, if it were that easy, that’s EXACTLY what we would do.
Be the LIGHT, be the ENCOURAGER, be a source of SUPPORT and a beacon of HOPE… but please don’t be judgmental.
To all my fellow diabadasses, keep fighting the good fight – we are all stronger than we think!
