World Diabetes Day

Equinoxe

Here’s a toast to World Diabetes Day.

One day, I hope that we do not need a special day to advocate for research, more consistent and accurate test strips and meters, better treatment protocols, and cure.

One day, I hope that we will not need a special day to correct the myths, misconceptions and erroneous information that media, the public, and even some of our own health care providers have about us.

One day, I hope that to be able to look back and say, “We had diabetes.”

One day …

For now, we live with this disease or condition the best way we can, we educate others, and we fight it anyway we can.
