A Low On World Diabetes Day
One would think that my pancreas would have gotten the message that this is WDD. I mean if they can light the Empire State Building blue for an evening can't my body process sugar in the right way? Apparently WDD isn't like my little sister's birthday - whatever she wants she gets; rather it unfortunately is just another day for all of us. The extra awareness, the blue umbrellas and the landmarks around the world doesn't change the way we count carbs, program our pumps or inject a bolus. The extra awareness is a great thing and hopefully it will propel some genius in Med School who is deciding between career paths into endocrinology so we can start to get some bright minds working on a cure or a better way to manage and treat this disease. I long for the day when I prick my finger and see 90 on my meter each and every time.
