A note about the odd post time: All of my posts will hit at 11:14 a.m.–the reason being that November 14 is National Diabetes Awareness Day. Hope you showed up with your blue;  if you can, for the remaining Fridays in November, wear something blue in a show of support to spotlight this cause.

JDRF Challenge–30 Days of Facebook, Day 28

Action status time!

The thing I/my child hates most about diabetes is __________.

Diabetes has to be monitored and maintained HOURLY, not just daily, and there’s a lot involved with that. You can’t take a vacation from doing any of it or just decide to skip a step when you don’t feel like it because that may literally be the difference between life and death. So I imagine the tedium of doing the same, marginally uncomfortable things over and over again has to get to a person after a while. What might your treatment peeve be?
