In the news...

This is a rather good [although quick] "day in the life" of someone like us with type 1. Her name is Dominique and still in the honeymoon phase. Oh how I miss the honeymoon phase...

It's good that we're finally getting a little more attention. Although, it's probably just due to the fact that it's National Diabetes Awareness Month or whatever bull shis they made up to make us feel appreciated... kind of like Boss's Day or Valentine's Day. The only other things I've seen in the media are ads at CVS for diabetes supplies for like ketone strips and glucotabs [watermellon is my new favorite]... But I could be wrong there may be more stuff circulating out there... I don't watch TV so maybe there have been some fantabulous stories. Please send me a link if there are...
However, I am very happy about World Diabetes Day. Global attention... that's what we need!

Spread the word. Tell your friends. Celebrate life!

Hi. My name is Elsa and I have a 3 and a half year old son with type 1 diabetes. he was diagnosed at 8 months. My goal is to educate as many people as I can about diabetes, especially the difference between type 1 and type 2. And to open their eyes to the challenges this disease brings into the lives of so many people.
Regards.
