|DiapointME at the 2014 Abu Dhabi November Diabetic Walk|
As usual, another year has flown by. November is finished. Diabetes month is finished. But in reality, it is not. For all of us with diabetes in our lives, every month is diabetes month. Every day is diabetes day. We live with it every single day, and often by the hour.
This is not to say we are looking for special treatment every day. We are not. We wish to be normal just like everyone else. In some places this is easier, in others it is not.
Just because November is over doesn't mean everything comes to a screeching halt. With so many events pushed together in one month, there is plenty of opportunity during 11 other months of the year to advocate or raise awareness. So, as we now wind the year down, if you wish to make a difference for someone, a group, or a community there is no better time than the present.
