Tonight I want people that read this to not think about the negative side of diabetes for the day. If it is late in the day make it a point to not bad mouth your diabetes tomorrow. Diabetes has given me so much, it has allowed me to setup partnerships with a pro franchise, meet with members of Congress, meet pro athletes living with diabetes, it has made me an endurance athlete, and has made me a better person. Diabetes has given me friends that I would have never met if it weren't for diabetes. I love that I'm attempting to run a second ultra marathon and I have at least three pro athletes with diabetes that are ultra runners that I can call, text or email whenever I need help. I also have countless friends that reach out to me for advice when it comes to diabetes.
I'm lucky to have people like this all over the country, a lot in New England, one in New York and a few in Florida but this website has connected me with diabetics all over the world. I love getting emails from people living in England, Spain, and Australia. We often don't thank our diabetes for all that it does, I ask you again to take the negative feelings that you feel towards your diabetes away for a day, you will have a great day and have a new appreciation for all that it has done for anyone living with the amazing disease!!
