I did the JDRF walk today, I have done it before, and I really enjoy it. There are so many emotions involved, but mostly I feel pride. Unfortunately this year, I walked alone. At first it didn't bother me, I focused on my walk, but after awhile the sound of laughter and genuine camaraderie made me feel a little lonely. The excitement and energy grows during the event and I had no one to share it with. Even so, I wouldn't have changed anything and not participated. Now I am second-guessing myself. Should I have done more to "beg" someone to come along (not my style)? I'm not good at meeting other diabetics like me. Maybe Juvenation is a good opportunity for diabetics to come together.
Please tell me your experiences if you have done thewalk or share your opinions/ideas.
