Take the Challenge
As part of Diabetes Awareness Month, JDRF has partnered with Sean Busby & Lilly Diabetes for the T1D for a Day Text Challenge. (I love that Sean, a mountain lover, is the one who’s diabetes life you get to experience this year.) I think that living with diabetes is so encompassing that completely understanding it in one day is going to be incredibly difficult. However, by getting up to 45 text messages about how “your” diabetes is acting, you will see how often it needs to be paid attention to and acted upon. Once you sign up, you will start getting texts within the hour. (Use the link above to find the Terms & Conditions)
