So a while ago a friend posted on his Facebook a whole spiel about diabetes, and I wrote to him that he was very courageous to put publicly out there that he had diabetes and I wasn’t ready to come out yet.
Turns out, he doesn’t have diabetes but wanted to show his support.
Since then, my publicly saying I have diabetes has been on my mind. I can count on my two hands the number of people who know I’m diabetic, and on less than 5 fingers that I’m t1d.
Since the kick off of t1d awareness month, it’s been toying on my mind and want to make a video about it.
So my question is:
As t1d, What would you like to tell “normal” people about t1d?
What would you like them to know?
