Changing Diabetes Day
Yesterday was World Diabetes Day.
I have known about WDD for a few years, but I’ve never been able to participate in anything offline. When I found out about Changing Diabetes Day at the Massachusetts State House, I knew I needed to be there. My low in the morning made me think I would miss it, but I didn’t. I found familiar faces, put my phone away, grabbed my Dexcom so that I could stop it from alerting if needed.
I knew that bring online to offline was about to happen and I couldn’t have been more excited. I am still riding on yesterday’s high, and words are escaping me. However, I’m going to share my tweets with you. I know I didn’t quote most of the people, but I didn’t know the names at the start. I just knew that these people cared and that they want to make a difference and they want to help us make a difference too. When I was given the opportunity to represent the Bay State YLC in a picture with the legislators and representatives from other organizations, I loved it.
