On Tuesday morning, I read a post by the “Diabetes Dad”, Tom Karlya, reminding his readers that November is not a month for the diabetes community, but rather, it is a month for those unaware of the in’s and out’s that is living with this disease. He pointed out that this is a month for those that “know nothing”, and urged people to focus on making those without the knowledge more aware.
In an effort to participate in Diabetes Awareness Month more than I ever have before, I’ve made a commitment to myself that I will be joining the Big Blue Test movement! As the month begins, I’m truly setting forth with great intentions and a willingness to hold myself accountable. It is my goal to participate at least once a day throughout the month of November and I am looking forward to having a challenge I can use to get me motivated to move my body more.
What is the Big Blue Test, you ask? GREAT QUESTION!
It’s officially November 1st! Halloween is over and behind us and the holidays are only a few short weeks away. However, the change in the calendar also represents a transition into a month where those of us involved in the diabetes community try to spread awareness and advocate on behalf of those living with T1D. Welcome to Diabetes Awareness Month!
